We got a heads-up that former Officer Ben Kirby is set to be arraigned Friday (today) at 10 am. Apparently, he's being charged with assisting escape, tampering with public records and conspiracy to tamper with public records.
Looks like the DA found it a bit too difficult to answer the whole "who's the other conspirator" question that according to our Eyes, was raised by an astute member of the grand jury. For a while it looked like Officer Fisher was going to be on the hook for the conspiracy role in the whole fiasco, but as of early January that option seemed to be taken off the table (read it here).
The DA has obviously changed tactics and decided to directly charge the former officer which is interesting in its own right, but what about the escapee? Amateur (or immature) race car driver, developer, and general traffic menace Jason Daskalos was the prisoner who made his own prison break. Despite his acquittal on DWI charges, to our knowledge he hasn't been charged with his own escape.
It's hard to imagine Kirby dragging a struggling Daskalos away from the paddy wagon against his will. Perhaps it's time for the DA to show a little equity in prosecution. Shouldn't all of the parties involved in a crime be prosecuted for that crime?
