COXSACKIE — A former inmate at Coxsackie Correctional Facility was arrested Friday on charges he attempted to escape from the prison in July, Steven Nevel, public information officer for State Police Troop F, said Tuesday.

Ricardo Jacquet, 33, was charged with first-degree escape, a class D felony, Nevel said.

On July 5, 2020, an incarcerated individual attempted to escape from Coxsackie Correctional Facility, Rachel Connors, deputy director of public information for the New York State Department of Corrections and Community Supervision, said.

The individual never breached the security of the building he was housed in and at no time was the public in any danger, Connors said.

DOCCS did not provide details of the incident.

The investigation is ongoing and cannot be commented on further at this time, Connors said.

Jacquet has since been transferred to Great Meadow Correctional Facility in Comstock, Washington County, Connors said.

Jacquet is serving 11-13 years for third-degree attempted burglary and second-degree burglary, according to the DOCCS website.
