SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — Authorities say a teacher has been arrested on suspicion of helping three inmates — including an alleged killer — escape from a maximum-security jail in Southern California. They believe the men may be living in a stolen van.
David Sweat has been arraigned on three felony counts in connection with his escape from a maximum-security state prison.
