This is the rural area where two Corcoran prisoners apparently escaped Sunday night. The prison believes Flores and Sanchez walked away from their job and got away by climbing this low, barbed wire fence. A public information officer says most escape attempts happen from there because it's not a very secure area.
“These inmates that are out here are lower level inmates. We do a thorough review of their case factors and based on their case factors and their crime they committed they're allowed to work out here on the dairy,” said Lt. Anthony Baer.
27-year-old Flores was serving a five year sentence for robbery. He was scheduled to parole in three years. 36-year-old Sanchez was serving two years for possession of marijuana for sale. He was scheduled to get out in two months.
“A lot of what we find is, they're missing their family, their kids, and a lot of times they'll take that risk to see them,” said Baer.
