EASLEY — A Greenville man and a Norris woman have been charged with helping two men escape from the Pickens County Stockade last week.
William “Billy” David Burns, 46, of 138 A Rasor Drive in Greenville, and Semeca Dannyelle Oglesby, 21, of 1031 N. Norris Drive in Norris, were charged with aiding escape from prison.
Burns was taken into custody June 16 and remained in the Pickens County Detention Center on Wednesday. Bond was set at $7,000 surety.
Oglesby was taken into custody on Wednesday and remained in the Pickens County Detention Center awaiting a bond hearing.
Burns was taken into custody at a residence on Ridgefield Circle in Easley after the investigation into last week’s escape revealed a surveillance video of Burns with the escaped prisoners at a nearby convenience store.
Witness statements and investigation showed Burns assisted Jeffery Shane Mauldin and Dustin Ryan Floyd by providing transportation from Pickens County to Greenville County on the date of the escape.
The investigation also showed that Oglesby arranged for the transportation and was present when Mauldin and Floyd were picked up a short distance from the Stockade the day they escaped.
Mauldin and Floyd were serving sentences for Family Court violations when they escaped from the Pickens County Stockade on June 9. Both were captured by deputies within days and charged with escape.
