Sex Offender Found Hitchhiking With Truckers 3-28-2011

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation authorities said an admitted sex offender tried to hitchhike his way to freedom.
John Hale, 54, did not report to prison as scheduled in Dickson County after pleading guilty in August 2010 to sexual battery of a victim younger than 13, and he landed on the state's most-wanted fugitive list. His sentence had been stayed by a judge for a medical procedure before going to prison.
Investigators learned he'd been hitchhiking with truckers from Florida.
Authorities caught up with him at a truck stop in Gordon County, Ga., on Saturday night and took him to jail. Hale is from Cumberland Furnace, Tenn.
