Just before dawn, two inmates on the 12th floor of an Oklahoma jail shimmied down a rope fashioned from dozens of bed sheets — and made their own daybreak.

Accused killers escape from 12th-floor window may be the most daring jailbreak ever An accused murderer shimmied down a makeshift rope made of.

Jailers only found out about the great escape because the cops stumbled across one of the prisoners, who broke his leg on the ride down and collapsed just outside the jail’s secure perimeter, an investigator told the Oklahoman newspaper.

Jose Balentin Hernandez, 33, and Pablo Daniel Robledo, 34, shared a cell in the 13-story jail in downtown Oklahoma City.

They looped the end of their 100-foot bedsheet rope to the leg of a metal desk in their digs, cut a metal grate and then broke their glass blocks to freedom. They left behind a hand-scribbled diagram of the jail, according to the newspaper, citing a police report.

Hernandez, accused of rape and indecent exposure, fell from the fourth floor, fracturing his ankle.

Robledo, suspected of being involved in a fatal gang shooting, changed into jeans and a shirt. He was captured — on foot, wearing cowboy boots — 6 miles away several hours after he made his dash. Sheriff’s deputies walked him back to the jail, the newspaper reported.

“We devoted every ounce of manpower we had to get this fugitive back in custody because we really believed he’d be a great threat to our community,” said US Marshal Johnny Kuhlman, who led the manhunt. “He was walking down the street in a front yard and confronted and arrested.”

Authorities described the jail as escape-proof when they cut the ribbon in 1991. Not two months later, two inmates tied together bed sheets and made their way to the ground, but they were just the first ones.

Friday’s flit, though, was the first one in years that used bedsheets.

Female prison officer admits having sex with killer inmate serving life for murder

Appearing at Maidstone Crown Court on Thursday, she admitted having a sexual relationship with Tate at the category B jail between September 2018 and January 2019 and pleaded guilty to a charge of misconduct in public office.

But she denied sending and receiving text messages and calls with Tate via an illicitly-held mobile phone.

Stephens now faces a trial after Judge Philip Statman was told the prosecution did not accept the not guilty plea.

But due to the pandemic and an existing backlog of cases, it could not be listed until August 2 next year.

The redhead, wearing a black dress and tights with her hair tied in a ponytail, sat in the dock just feet away from Tate, 34, who admitted the mobile phone offence.

Prosecutor Maria Karaiskos said calls or texts were made 'over a number of weeks' with Stephens allegedly in the prison car park and 'on many occasions' while off-duty.

Tate, who was sentenced to life imprisonment in October 2010, was said to have had the mobile in his single cell.
