News Release

Females walk away from Transition Center (Photo) - 10/21/21

Deputies are asking for community tips after four female adults in custody (AIC) left the Marion County Transition Center without authorization on Tuesday, October 19th, 2021.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office Transition Center prepares AICs for re-entry into the community prior to release from custody. Staffed around the clock, the Transition Center provides an intermediate sanction between Jail and Probation. Unlike the Jail, the Transition Center provides minimum-security supervision. Residents are expected to work, either at their own jobs or by performing community services. The mission of the Transition Center is to provide just and humane care for AICs at the center by providing a positive and rehabilitative environment. To accomplish this mission, staff utilizes Core Correctional Practices (CCP) to assist AICs by holding them accountable and teaching them basic pro-social skills to assist in their successful transition back into the community. 

At approximately 2:00 p.m. on October 19th, Hannah Crawford (21), exited the facility after walking out an unlocked door. Crawford was in custody for a probation violation. She was scheduled to be released from custody on November 6th, 2021.

Later in the day, shortly before 6:00 p.m., three females left through a dorm window, which is kept unlocked. 

  • Amanda Schultz (30) was in custody serving a sanction for a parole violation, her release date had not yet been determined.
  • Shyndia Alexander (21) was in custody serving a sanction for a parole violation, her release date had not yet been determined.
  • Mariah Hall (25) was serving a sentence for domestic violence offenses and was scheduled for release on November 2nd, 2021.

Deputies are asking anyone who has information about these women’s location to call the Marion County Sheriff’s Office non-emergency dispatch at 503-588-5032.
