Grand jury indicts Ellis, Jacobs and 27 others

Ellis-Danny-Jr

ELLIS

A 15-year-old Indian Lake boy was indicted Tuesday as a serious youthful offender, a method of blending a juvenile disposition with an adult sentence.

Danny Ellis was named in Logan County grand jury indictments for felonious assault, a first-degree felony; assault, a fourth-degree felony; escape, a third-degree felony; and theft.

A co-defendant, Caleb Jacobs, 18, was indicted for felonious assault, a first-degree felony; assault, a fourth-degree felony; and escape, a third-degree felony.

The teens are accused of pummeling Deputy Tim Klingelhofer and struggling with Corrections Officer Cpl. Shelly Wisner inside the Logan County Juvenile Detention Center before escaping March 6.

The Logan County Family Court relinquished jurisdiction over Mr. Jacobs in an Oct. 2 ruling, while keeping Danny in the juvenile system.

Both were apprehended within a day or two of the escape and have been lodged in the Logan County Jail ever since.
