Tanya Apple, 45, and Nichole Sexton, 33, each pleaded not guilty to escape charges in Clark County Municipal Court on Monday. Bond was set at $5,000 for each inmate.

A sheriff’s deputy was escorting another inmate from one of the jail pods to a visit at about 5:20 p.m. Sunday, according to court records. The inmate allegedly told the deputy they needed to do a check in the pod because “they’re doing bad things in there.”
