Dayonte Resiles could beat the rap on several felonies and a first-degree murder charge, and still might end up in prison for 15 to 50 years.
That’s the potential time cost of Resiles’ July 15 escape from the Broward County Courthouse now that the state has stacked on six counts of criminal solicitation and one count of criminal conspiracy.
Resiles, 21, remained on the run for five days while the Broward Sheriff’s Office rounded up his suspected helpers. With help from their counterparts in Palm Beach County, Broward deputies recaptured Resiles at a West Palm Beach Days’ Inn on July 20.
Also under the criminal conspiracy umbrella are Paige Jackson, accused of helping Resiles communicate with his outside assistance in the planning stages of the escape; 17-year-old twins Kre-tron and Tre-von Barnes, who’ll be charged as adults and accused of handling the communication between Resiles in the courtroom and the getaway car outside the courthouse; LaQuay Stern, the alleged getaway driver; Francine Mesadieu, who police believe helped Resiles disguise himself; and Armonie Frankson-Dennis, who police say chauffered Resiles around Broward the day of his escape.
