Escape-goading Guard? Details about the Cook County Jail Break

Prosecutors allege that the county-jail guard accused of aiding the weekend escape of six Cook County, IL inmates handcuffed himself and gave the inmates his uniform and ID.  The guard, Darin Gater, reportedly facilitated the escape in hopes of influencing the upcoming sheriff's election.  According to prosecutors, if he embarrassed outgoing Cook County Sheriff Michael Sheahan, he would aid the candidacy of Democratic-primary candidate Richard Remus. Remus isn't suspected of knowing anything about the plot. More details about the escape. . . [Mark Godsey]
