Wayne County Deputy Sheriffs Charged In Inmate Escape

DETROIT (WWJ) – Two Wayne County Deputy Sheriffs have been charged in connection with the escape of an inmate.

Prosecutor Kym Worthy brought charges against Dirk Teamer, 40, and Terrance Bush, 44, in connection with the escape of inmate Willie Wright.

Wright escaped from custody on January 4 this year while he was receiving medical treatment at Harper University Hospital in Detroit. Wright was eventually found and arrested 30 hours later.

It is alleged that the Deputies waited to report the escape and filed a false police report.

Wright had recently been sentenced to 35 to 60 years in prison on charges of criminal sexual conduct first degree, assault with intent to murder, kidnapping and felony firearm.

Those charges stem from an incident where Wright kidnapped and raped his ex-girlfriend, then shot her in the head as she tried to flee.

Teamer and Bush are charged with filing a false felony report, willful neglect of duty, misconduct in office and conspiracy to commit misconduct in office.

They are expected to be arraigned Friday at 1:00 p.m. in 36th District Court.
