Former FBI Agent Carson On How Two Murderers Broke Out Of Prison With False Court Orders


Police say they’re investigating several suspects after two Florida inmates were able to use forged documents to escape from state prison.

Joseph Jenkins and Charles Walker are back in custody this  after being captured at a Panama City motel, but they got out of Franklin Correctional Institution after successfully using fake paperwork that reduced their sentences.

How did this happen, and what changes are underway to tighten security at Florida prisons?

Attorney and former FBI agent Dale Carson joined Melissa Ross to discuss the "great inmate escape" and spoke to listeners who shared their reactions to the story.
