Steuben man tried escaping from county jail: Now he faces felony charges

Deputies report the arrest of a 29-year-old Bath resident following an escape investigation at the Steuben County Jail.

It’s further alleged that Jackson then resisted arrest and injured an officer while doing so. He was charged with felony counts of assault, escape, and criminal mischief.

Jackson was never not in custody and remained incarcerated after the incident.
