Jonathan Jackson, one of three Faulkner County inmates to escape the jail Aug. 17, will appear in Faulkner County Circuit Court on four pretrial hearings Monday morning.

Jackson, 24, escaped the jail, located at 500 S. German Lane, along with Stacy Wilson, 41, and Joel Vermillion, 27.

Wilson and Vermillion were captured in the parking lot of Duncan Outdoors two days after the escape. The following day, Jackson was captured by U.S. Marshals in a Oklahoma City motel.

All three were charged with third-degree escape.

In addition to the escape charge, Jackson faces five felony charges and two misdemeanors, which stem from three criminal cases filed in September 2012 and January.

The additional charges include two counts of theft by receiving and possession of a controlled substance, class C felonies, possession with intent to deal methamphetamine or cocaine, a class B felony, and possession of drug paraphernalia, a class D felony.

Two defendants, accused of hindering the apprehension of Jackson, are also scheduled to appear before Circuit Judge Ed Clawson on Monday.

Jace McCollum, 29, is also scheduled to appear before Clawson on four hearings, including three motions.

The three motion hearings stem from guilty pleas — to charges including possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine or cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, felony resisting arrest, forgery and probation revocation — in 2012.

McCollum is currently being held without bond, court documents show.

Jennifer Ruminer, 30, is scheduled to appear Monday on two pretrial hearings. In addition to hindering apprehension, Ruminer faces charges of possession with intent to deliver methamphetamine or cocaine, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to maintain a drug premises and possession of drug paraphernalia to manufacture meth or cocaine.

The charges stem from a case filed in May.

Ruminer is currently out on a $3,000 bond.
