One of three Faulkner County inmates to escape the jail Aug. 17 appeared in Faulkner County Circuit Court on Monday afternoon.
Stacy Wilson, 41, appeared on four pretrial hearings and one motion hearing.
Frank Shaw formally entered himself as Wilson’s defense attorney on all cases. Wilson was previously represented by Faulkner County public defenders.
Deputy Public Defender Karen Walker-Knight said all discovery items have been turned over to Shaw.
Wilson, currently held in lieu of a $1 million bond, faces five felony charges including third-degree escape, residential burglary, theft of property, failure to appear and theft by receiving.
The five felony charges stem from four cases filed between May and August of 2013.
Prosecutors have also filed a motion to impose a suspended sentence regarding a 2010 case, in which Wilson pleaded guilty to two felonies — manufacturing with intent to deliver controlled substances and possession of drug paraphernalia with intent to deliver — and four misdemeanors — driving on a suspended license, carrying a weapon, improper display of license tags and no liability insurance. However, prosecution agreed to allow Shaw the time to review all cases regarding Wilson.
The motion to impose the suspended sentence of 10 years in prison was filed July 3 after prosecutors say he violated terms and conditions. Wilson is set for a status report at 9 a.m. Oct. 30.
