Is that promotion now in jeopardy? It was to take place just after the New Year, but a former federal security expert says the escape puts it in doubt.
As the ITeam reported Tuesday night, Linaweaver was also recently named the 2012 Warden of the Year by her national association.
The accolades and Linaweaver's soaring career surprised some colleagues, because her background is education, and not corrections. She also is a private horse trainer on the side.
There will be what's called an "after action report" on the jailbreak, the results of which could interrupt her transfer.
