Inmate escapes from Adams County Jail

BOISE, Idaho (AP) - The Idaho Department of Correction says a 47-year-old inmate has escaped from the Adams County Jail in Council.
   
The department identified the inmate as Robert Michael Williston.
   
It says Williston escaped Saturday night by apparently scaling a fence.
   
The agency describes Williston is an Asian-American with a shaved head, brown eyes and an olive complexion. He is 6-foot-1, and he weighs 195 pounds.
   
Williston's criminal record includes convictions for grand theft and first-degree burglary in Madison County, grand larceny and fraudulent use of a financial transaction card in Ada County, and burglary and attempted strangulation in Kootenai County.
   
His sentence was to be completed in August 2025.
