PERRY COUNTY - The escapes this year of three men from the Branchville Correctional Facility brought major changes to the medium-security prison, including a new electrified stun fence and lighting.
Jerry Sargent, 59, Christopher Marshall, 49, and 31-year-old Bobby Cockerell escaped March 20 after striking a maintenance worker and cutting through two fences. The trio eluded a manhunt, stole a vehicle near St. Croix and traveled to Kentucky, where they allegedly beat three brothers near Sanders, Ky.
