Associated Press Release

CRANSTON, R.I. (AP) -- A former Rhode Island man has been found living in Florida years after being sentenced to serve prison time for conspiracy to commit arson.

Seventy-four-year-old Carlton Winsor of Tallahassee, Fla. tells WJAR-TV he never reported to prison after his 1988 conviction, because nobody every notified him that he had lost his appeal.

Court records show Winsor was sentenced to two years at the Adult Correction Institutions and three years of probation, but was allowed to remain free on bail during his appeal because his wife at the time was seriously ill.

The state Supreme Court upheld the conviction on March 14, 1990.

Winsor told the television station he plans to discuss the situation with his lawyer, Walter Stone, who is now a Superior Court judge.
