CHESAPEAKE, Va. (WAVY) - A Chesapeake escaped inmate is still on the loose and WAVY.com spoke with several of those accused of helping him escape.
Two deputies have been fired and two more disciplined following Clancy Starling's Monday escape. Meanwhile, four inmates are charged with assisting him and could face an additional one to five years in jail.
Keith McAdoo had just three months left on his sentence.
"I've never been in that situation before I was more scared than anything," said McAdoo. "I seen them all huddled down around the fence I didn't bother to ask what was going on."
Inmate Michael Darnell says he saw a lot more.
"The plan how he was going to get out the first time was climb up the barbed wire fence but he got stuck there then he came back down 30 minutes later because he was stuck there," Darnell told WAVY.com. "He came back down sat down on the ground and then that dude Michael gave him the idea of clipping the wires at the bottom of the fence," said Darnell.
In those 30 minutes, Darnell says deputies weren't around.
"They were in the office eating chicken and listening to music," he said.
Travis Christian says he was inside the gym the entire time, except for 10 minutes.
"They told me somebody said I had something to do with it that's just going to be something my lawyer is going to take up," said Christian.
Some of the inmates said they hoped video surveillance would prove their innocence, but there is none.
"He said he had 20 years to do and he wasn't doing it," Darnell added. "He said the police would have to kill him when he got out to bring him back."
Thomas Evans is the fourth inmate accused of assisting Starling.
The Sheriff's Office said they will add surveillance video to the outside gym area. No other policies or procedures are being changed following the incident.
