FREDERICK, Md. - The third alleged accomplice in an escape from the Victor Cullen Center was denied bond Tuesday in Frederick County District Court.
Christopher Ronald Conner, 17, was arrested Saturday in Baltimore County. He is charged with first-degree assault, use of a handgun in the commission of a felony and aiding escape, Maryland State Police said.
Conner, who is being charged as an adult, was being held Tuesday night at the Frederick County Adult Detention Center.
The charges stem from an escape from the youth facility on Dec. 1. During the incident, Michael Keith Beers escaped from the Sabillasville, Md., facility with the help of a person who fired shots as a distraction.
