      Faulkner County escape due in court for hearing

      CONWAY, Ark. (AP) - One of the three inmates who escaped the Faulkner County jail last month is due in court.

      The Log Cabin Democrat reports (http://bit.ly/1hbsfSa ) that 27-year-old Joel Vermillion is due in Faulkner County Circuit Court Monday for two pretrial hearings and a revocation hearing.

      The pretrial hearings are on charges of forgery, possession with intent to sell drugs, possession of drug paraphernalia and third-degree escape. The revocation hearing is related to a 2012 charge of illegal possession of a firearm.

      Authorities say Vermillion escaped the jail Aug. 17 with inmates Stacy Wilson and Jonathan Jackson. Vermillion and Wilson were recaptured nearly two days later after leading police on a high speed chase from Mayflower to Conway. Jackson was recaptured by U.S. marshals in Oklahoma City about three days after the escape.
