In August, when a bunch of inmates tried to escape from the Albemarle-Charlottesville Regional Jail, a few of them rescued a guard being held hostage by the group and tried to end the uprising. Their efforts did not go unnoticed by other inmates, with whom they’re no longer particularly popular. One man, Marshall Shelton, has been told by fellow inmates that if he’s sent to prison, he’ll be killed for his actions. The $10 reward that he received from the jail superintendent may be insufficient to justify that danger. Liesel Nowak has the story in today’s Progress.
