Third Former Juvenile Detention Center Employee Charged in Connection with the Escape of Four Teens



Former Davidson County Juvenile Detention Center employee Tierra Foxx, 28, has surrendered on an arrest warrant charging her with facilitating, by recklessness, the November 30 escape of four teens. She is the third former staff member to be charged.

The investigation shows that Foxx, who worked for Youth Opportunity Investments, asked a master control operator to send an elevator onto which the four teens had boarded to the basement after being requested to do so by one of the teens. That action is seen as a significant contributing factor to the escape of the four, the last of whom was recaptured on December 12.
