Toby Young released on bond
The woman accused of helping a convicted killer escape from Lansing Correctional Facility earlier this year has left Leavenworth County Jail after posting $100,000 bond yesterday.
Three bonding agencies put up the money for Toby Young to be released, said Wade Schmierer, Leavenworth County Jail administrator. Young was released at 5:10 a.m. Thursday, April 27.
Young was held at the jail for 56 days on charges of aiding and abetting aggravated escape, aiding a felon and trafficking contraband into a correctional facility.
Young is accused of helping John M. Manard, a 27-year-old convicted murderer, escape from Lansing Correctional Facility on Feb. 12. Young ran Safe Harbor Prison Dog program at the prison and is alleged to have driven Manard out of the prison, hidden in a dog crate in the program's van.
Young and Manard were captured Feb. 24 in rural Tennessee. Manard is back at Lansing.
Schmierer said Young's bond states that she cannot leave the state of Kansas. She will be required to appear in court June 2 for her preliminary hearing.
