As reported here last month, the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Department notified neighboring counties; including Calaveras County that the fugitive might be in the Valley springs area as he had lived there in the past.

Corey Hughes was on the run after escaping work detail in late November.

Hughes told a reporter for the newspaper as he was being led out of the home that he was punched in the face. When no one answered, a Stockton Police K9 was sent inside the residence, and Hughes was taken into custody. He was then taken to a hospital before being booked into the San Joaquin County Jail.

San Joaquin Sheriff's Office Public Information Officer Dave Konecny previously noted that law enforcement believed Hughes would likely go into hiding due to the substantial media attention surrounding his escape.

Corey Hughes' full-face skeleton tattoo speaks for itself.

Corey Hughes was set to be released in February, but now faces more time behind bars.

. He was serving time at the Honor Farm, located south of Stockton, which is a minimum-security facility that houses inmates who are usually low-risk and classified as non-violent.
