Deputy in prisoner escape may have been threatened

DENVER — The attorney for a sheriff’s deputy accused of helping a felon escape the downtown Denver jail says the deputy and his family felt they were in danger.

Matthew Andrews faces felony charges that he aided in the Sunday night escape of Felix Trujillo, who remained at large Tuesday.

According to the Denver Post, attorney Donald Sisson says Andrews had been threatened and there was never an agreement to help Trujillo escape in exchange for money.
