Lake City Inmate Attempts to Escape from Work Camp
An inmate at the Lake City Correctional Institute has been charged with trying to escape from prison. On Monday, Oct. 26, correctional officers in charge of the work release center observed inmate Jason Williams leave the grounds of the institute along with the aid of a woman, who was later identified as Latoya Taylor of Gainesville.
The officers said Taylor took Williams to her car and then drove to an unknown location outside of the work camp. By the time police officers arrived at the scene, Taylor had already brought Williams back to the work camp.
After initially denying the charges that she took Williams to an off site location, Taylor later admitted to police that the story was true.
The Lake City Police Department has charged inmate Williams with escape and Taylor with aiding and abetting the escape of a prisoner.
