Sarah Jo Pender was in prison for her role in the double homicide of her former roommates. Despite the evidence, Sarah has maintained that she was wrongfully convicted. Not okay with staying in prison, she planned her escape with the help of correctional officer Scott Spitler.
Scott provided her with a cell phone and clothes and personally drove her out of prison in a van. Correctional officers identified Scott as her accomplice through surveillance tapes, and he was sentenced to eight years in jail. America’s Most Wanted ran an episode that featured Sarah who had since moved to Chicago working for a contractor under the name Ashley Thompson. After recognizing her in the episode, a neighbor alerted the police and Sarah was arrested.
