One of the officers is being charged of directly helping the convicts after he received payment to facilitate the escape plan and ensure it was successful. The officer who was identified as Willy Wambua helped to plan a meeting between the three escapees in cell 6 where they had escaped from. This is after he transferred one of the prisoners from cell 2 to cell 6 for the meeting.
