Juvenile Detention Officer Leonard Wall succumbed to injuries sustained when he was severely beaten by three juvenile inmates at the Jack Jones Juvenile Justice Center.

Officer Wall was conducting bed checks when the three inmates attacked him and took his keys. When another officer came to check on Officer Wall, the inmates attacked her too, inflicting non-life threatening injuries.

The three inmates escaped from the facility, stole a car from a nearby gas station, and robbed a couple. Two of the suspects were apprehended the following day and charged with capital murder. The third suspect was apprehended later, after he was stopped driving a stolen truck, and was also charged with capital murder.

In October of 2010 one of the suspects was convicted of third degree escape, several other charges, and sentenced to 25 years. On September 7, 2012, the suspect who planned the escape was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to 50 years in prison. He will be eligible for parole after he serves 35 years. While awaiting trial he was charged with assaulting four different officers in four separate incidents. The third suspect will be tried in juvenile court in November of 2012.
