Blount fugitive arrested in South Carolina

According to a press release from Blount County District Attorney Pamela Casey, Jeffrey Allen Hill, 25, was extradited from South Carolina for Sex Abuse charges with a child victim under the age of 12.

In August 2011, evidence was presented to a Blount County grand jury which resulted in Hill’s indictment. He was a fugitive from Blount County and the State of Alabama until he was arrested in South Carolina in April of this year.

“District Attorney Casey then sought and obtained a Governor’s warrant for his return to Alabama to face current charges,” the press release stated.

As of Tuesday, Hill was being held in the Blount County Correctional Facility on a $250,000 bond.
