KOSCIUSKO COUNTY — Colt Lundy, 23, has been transferred to the South Bend Community Re-Entry Center, just months before he is scheduled to finish his sentence on home detention. The SBCRC is an Indiana Department of Corrections work release facility. He is slated to begin home detention March 15.
The mission of SBCRC, according to its website “promotes the successful reintegration of lawful, self-sufficient and productive citizens into the community through the thoughtful application of dynamic supervision, experienced rehabilitative programming; and by providing opportunities for its residents to demonstrate strong work ethic and civic duty to foster productive partnerships with employers and citizens in the local communities.”
The facility offers a wide range of programs including a work release program, re-entry education program, employment readiness class, life skills seminar, money smart and Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University, a self study program.
Lundy appeared in Kosciusko Superior Court 1 Oct. 4 for a sentence modification. During that hearing it was shown there have been no disciplinary issues against Lundy since Oct. 31, 2012, with no pending charges and he is said to be a model prisoner. Judge David Cates ruled Nov. 2 while immediate sentence modification was denied, he did grant modification to begin March 15, with an anticipated release date to begin five years of probation set for Dec. 1.
Lundy was sentenced in 2010 at the age of 15 to 25 years on a charge of conspiracy to commit murder, in the death of his stepfather Phillip Danner, at the Indiana Department of Corrections, with five years probation. His initial release date was in September 2035.
