She had previously been investigated for an alleged relationship with one of the inmates, and sources reported that she was even supposed to be the mens’ getaway driver after their escape on June 6. However, she checked herself into the hospital instead for a “case of nerves.” Joyce was arrested on June 12, and charged with two felonies: Promoting Prison Contraband and Criminal Facilitation
