SPOKANE, Wash. -

Just two months after being released from custody, Casey Hallman already has a warrant for his arrest. Hallman was released November 18th, 2013, less than a year after admitting to two dozen burglaries in Spokane County. The Spokane County Sheriff's Office originally brought 77 charges against him, but the Prosecutor's Office agreed to a plea deal for one count of second degree burglary. He was arrested in December of 2012 and spent a little more than 11 months in custody in total. Hallman is now wanted for an escape warrant from community custody, a felony.

SPOKANE, Wash. - The problem of repeat offenders continues in Spokane County and some say right now it's as bad as it has been. Law enforcement has said for years that it's a small group of people that commit a large amount of the crime and KHQ's Alex Rozier found that sometimes the system isn't too tough on the worst among us.

24 year old Casey Hallman had more than ten felony convictions before his arrest on December 4th, 2012. When he was arrested in December it was for a burglary in progress. After he was taken into custody he said he wanted to clear his conscious so he took detectives on a joyride and admitted to 24 other burglaries. In all, he stole more than $60,000 from two dozen families in that spree. By the end of the investigation the Sheriff's office had a total of 77 charges against him; 54 felonies and 23 misdemeanors.

In April, just four months after his arrest, a plea deal was reached. Hallman was found guilty of one count of second degree attempted burglary. 76 charges were dealt away. The sentence was originally 38.25-51 months, but if he completes drug treatment in prison it would be lowered to 18 months in custody, 18 months probation.

As it turns out, according to the Department of Corrections, Hallman will be out next month on November 18th. He received some additional benefits for his time served and good behavior. In the end he will spend less than a year in prison. Tonight on KHQ Local News at 5 and 6 we will take a closer look at repeat offenders and what local leaders say needs to happen to fix the problem.
