ORANGE COUNTY, CA - It looks like one of the three jail escapees in California has had a change of heart.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Department,  Bac Duong, 43, turned himself into authorities Friday afternoon.

What's even more surprising is the person who may have helped him and his posse break free.

According to the Sheriff's Department, Nooshafarin Ravaghi , a teacher at the prison, is one of five suspected in helping the escapees get away.

Ravaghi, who's been an ESL teacher at the jail since last summer, is also accused of giving the inmates maps which helped with the prison break.

It seems she may have taken a page straight out of Joyce Mitchell's book.

Remember, the New York prison seamstress that helped two New York inmates break out of jail last June?

Investigators said Mitchell provided the two with hacksaw blades, drill bits, and even special eyeglasses with lights.

Ironic that both ladies would risk so much to free the bad guys from jail, without thinking they might just land there themselves.
