When gang leader George Hyatte escaped from prison custody outside a court in Tennessee, he had an unusual accomplice: a former prison nurse, Jennifer, who had become his wife. Over a torrid year, the couple had fallen in love and carried on an affair against prison regulations. Their breakout plan was simple, but potentially deadly. They would wait until George went to court, and in the parking lot Jennifer would demand at gunpoint that the prison officers release her husband.
