Fayette Deputy Resigns Over Inmate Escape
Posted October 30th, 2013 @ 6:02am by Ohio News Network

A Fayette County deputy jailer has resigned after the escape of a jail inmate, that led to a stolen vehicle-turned car chase crash that took the life of the inmate.

A preliminary investigation shows the inmate had hidden a handcuff key that a jailer had dropped on the floor while breaking up a fight between two inmates, but never reported to her supervisor.

Sheriff Vernon Standforth says when jailer Shannon Plumlee was confronted about the escape, she resigned and was escorted out of the building.
