AUGUSTA, Maine (AP) - Officials say a Maine Correctional Center inmate who was allowed to serve his sentence in the community has died.

The Department of Corrections said 65-year-old Charles Edmond Fulcher died early Tuesday while participating in the Supervised Community Confinement program, which allowed him to stay outside the prison.

Spokesman Scott Fish said the program allows some low-risk offenders to serve part of their sentence in the community. He said Fulcher died a relative’s home in Hollis. He declined to offer additional details.

At the time of his death, Fulcher had served approximately 2 years of a sentence of more than 3 years as a repeat drunken driving offender.
