Ase­cu­rity lapse at the Twin Tow­ers Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity in down­town Los Angeles that helped al­low an in­mate to es­cape ear­lier this week has been rec­ti­fied. The in­mate, 37-year-old Christo­pher Lee Brown, re­mained at large for days, af­ter he walked out of the in­mate re­lease area. He had been sen­tenced ear­lier in the day to four years, eight months in jail af­ter be­ing con­victed of bur­glary and iden­tity theft.

Au­thor­i­ties said they be­lieve Brown im­per­son­ated an­other in­mate as part of his ef­fort to es­cape. He was dis­cov­ered miss­ing dur­ing an in­mate count that night.

“As a re­sult of the in­mate’s ac­tions, and that it ap­pears that man­dated se­cu­rity prac­tices may not have been fol­lowed, the in­mate was able to es­cape through the jail In­mate Re­cep­tion Cen­ter re­lease area door,” said Los Angeles County Sher­iff’s Cap­tain Mike Parker.
