Four charged in inmate's escape from Hamilton County Justice Center

An inmate who escaped from the Hamilton County Justice Center will go before a judge Monday, along with three people who police say helped him.

Investigators said 19-year-old Paul Green walked away from kitchen detail Saturday afternoon. He was found a few hours later at an apartment in Lincoln Heights.

Police have charged Dante Davis, Derrick Davis and Shannon Larkin with helping Green elude police.

The trio is accused of letting Green hide in their apartment’s shower. All three are charged with complicity.

Officers said Green escaped the kitchen detail by hopping onto an Aramark truck that was leaving the jail.

A female inmate saw green throw his shirt near a trash bin by the Horseshoe Casino before running toward the Greyhound station, deputies said.

Green was arraigned on a $25,000 bond for an escape charge. He has a grand jury hearing scheduled for Oct. 9.

Larkin, Derrick Davis and Dante Davis were all released on their own recognizance after the arraignment. Their next court hearing is on Oct. 15.
