Fugitive: Man Skips Prison Start Date After Trial Conviction for Second DUI

Tabs

Case

An Elizabethtown man is wanted after failing to appear for his prison sentence regarding a trial conviction last week for driving under the influence.

Daniel Hillary III, 43, was convicted March 20 of DUI and sentenced to 90 days to 23 months in prison, followed by three years of probation.

However, he did not show up at Lancaster County Prison two days later when he was supposed to begin serving the sentence.

Anyone with information about Hillary’s whereabouts is asked to contact the Lancaster County Sheriff’s Office (717-299-8200), their local police department, or submit a tip on this CrimeWatch page.

At trial, Assistant District Attorney Jonathan Chieppor presented evidence that Hillary was under the influence of narcotics when police stopped him Feb. 17, 2017, for running a stop sign on Cloverleaf Road in Mount Joy Township.

A jury deliberated about an hour before deciding the case.

Lancaster County Judge Jeffery Wright ordered sentence.

Northwest Regional police Officer Seth Arnold filed charges.
