Curtis Lee Wyatt, 48, of Raccoon, Kentucky, pleaded guilty to one count of conspiracy to escape from custody before U.S. District Judge Danny C. Reeves of the Eastern District of Kentucky.  Sentencing has been scheduled for June 29, before Judge Reeves.

In September 2017, Wyatt was charged in a seven-count indictment with conspiracy to escape, instigating and assisting escape, conspiracy to commit failure to appear, aiding and abetting failure to appear, and making false statements to the FBI in connection with his role in assisting former Social Security disability lawyer Eric Christopher Conn escape from federal custody. The indictment alleges that Conn, while on home confinement after pleading guilty to two federal offenses but before being sentenced, escaped from custody by severing an electronic monitoring device from his ankle during a court-approved visit to Lexington, Kentucky on June 2, 2017, and fled to the Mexican border.  According to the indictment, Conn ultimately failed to appear for his sentencing hearing on July 14, 2017.
