ORANGEBURG, SC (WCSC) - A judge denied bond for three additional people charged in connection with Saturday's jailbreak at the Orangeburg County jail.

Otis Goodwine, 28, is charged with two counts of aiding an escapee and one count of first-degree assault and battery.

Roosevelt Johnson, 24, is facing two counts of aiding an escapee.

Tykeil Huggins, 21, is charged with one count of escape.

"We presented our position to the court that these individuals are a danger to our community and beyond," Orangeburg County Sheriff Leroy Ravenell said. "The court then denied bond on all three subjects."

The three appeared before Orangeburg County Magistrate Peggy Doremus who denied bond.

Revenell said at a Wednesday news conference that Goodwin and Johnson are believed to have been part of the original plans to escape while Huggins is believed to have taken the opportunity to join the effort.

However, during an attempt by several to escape on Saturday, Tyshon Demontrea Johnson, 27; Curtis Ray Green, 20; and Christopher Shannon Boltin, 27, actually made it out of the facility.

Both Tyshon Johnson and Christopher Boltin have since been recaptured.

Green remains the only suspect being sought in the actual escape.

However, investigators say there may be several more who will face charges.

"Anyone who helped these individuals in this effort should come forth now to speak with us," Ravenell said. "Here's the deal. If you knock on our door, it may not be too late. But if we're coming through your door, it's too late."
