Two of three Faulkner County inmates to escape the jail Aug. 17, and two people accused of helping one of the inmates, will appear in Faulkner County Circuit Court on Monday.

Joel Vermillion, 27, and Jonathan Jackson, 24, are scheduled to appear before Circuit Judge Ed Clawson on multiple hearings.

Vermillion is set to appear on two pretrial hearings, relating to four felony charges, and one probation revocation hearing, relating to a prior guilty plea to possession of a firearm by a certain person.

Vermillion is currently being held without bond.

Jackson is set to appear on four hearings, relating to six felony charges and two misdemeanors.

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

In addition to hindering, Jace McCollum, 29, is set to appear on three other hearings, all motions, relating to four felony charges and three misdemeanors. McCollum is being held without bond, court documents show.

Jennifer Ruminer, 30, also charged with hindering the apprehension of Jackson, is set to appear on one other hearing, relating to four drug charges, all felonies. Ruminer is currently out on a $3,000 bond.

Vermillion, Jackson and Stacy Wilson, 41, escaped the Faulkner County jail at 500 S. German Lane on Aug. 17 by pulling back a fence in the recreation yard.

Wilson and Vermillion were caught almost two days later in the parking lot of Duncan Outdoors. Jackson was captured the following day by U.S. Marshals in an Oklahoma City motel.

The inmates’ escape led to three detention facility officers being fired.
