Woman Who Helped Pulaski County Jail Escapees Sent to Prison

PULASKI COUNTY, Mo. – A woman accused of aiding in the escape of two prisoners from the Pulaski County Jail in September 2016 has been sentenced to five years in prison, but may be eligible for parole after 120 days.

According to the Pulaski County Circuit Clerk’s office and online court records, Marlee Nicole Davy was sentenced on Monday (8/21/17) by Circuit Judge John Wiggins to 120 days of shock time, after which the judge will accept a report from the Department of Corrections to determine whether she will be placed on probation or serve the rest of the 5-year sentence.

One of the two men who escaped has been sentenced to a total of 10 years in prison for escape, fleeing from custody and attempted assault on a law officer.

Davy, 24, pleaded guilty to aiding in the escape of a prisoner, one of the five charges she originally faced.

One of the two escapees, James Randall Sherrell, 24, was sentenced in May to two years for escape, three years for assault of an officer and four years for fleeing, online court records show. The sentences are to be served consecutively, according to the Pulaski County Circuit Clerk’s office.

Prosecutors claim that Sherrell and another inmate in the Pulaski County Jail escaped from custody on Sept. 18, 2016. A jailer, Angelica Black, is charged with sexual contact with the second inmate who escaped, Dustin Richardson.

Black has pleaded guilty and is to be sentenced in October. Richardson pleaded guilty and was sentenced to four years on the escape charge.
