Letter from Escaped Convict

June 12, 2017

Eric Conn’s attorney says that the escaped convict has sent a letter to him. The letter outlines demands Conn wants met in exchange for his surrender. Back in March, Conn pleaded guilty to Social Security fraud and theft charges. He was scheduled to be sentenced next month. However, he removed an electronic monitoring device and fled earlier this month.

Those conditions outlined in the letter include two major parts. First, Conn demands that the others charged in connection with the Social Security theft get the same sentence as he is expected to get. Second, he demands that the FBI not charge him with any new crimes related to his fleeing from house arrest. Conn says that these conditions need to be met in order for him to surrender to the FBI.
