Fake documents helped release Pinellas inmate in 2009

Posted: Updated:

In jailhouse visits and phone calls, Nydeed Nashaddai pleads with his wife to send him "the papers."

The subject comes up repeatedly, and during one call from jail, Nashaddai tells her the papers are "going to help me get out of here."

Nashaddai's apparent scheme in 2009 is getting new attention now, as law enforcement investigates the escape of two inmates – Charles Walker and Joseph Jenkins – who walked out of a state prison after fake documents were filed to secure their release.

The two escaped inmates were released from Franklin Correctional Institute –the same facility where Nashaddai served time after being convicted on his escape charge. It's unclear whether the inmates served at the same time; FDLE has said it is investigating whether there is any connection.

Nashaddai's case dates back to 2009, when he was in the Pinellas County Jail on forgery and grand theft charges.

In calls from the jail, Nashaddai instructs his wife to look through a packet of papers for a specific sheet with a certain signature on it.

On one call, Nashaddai asks her to put some other legal-related papers in the envelope with the piece of paper he wanted.

"I'm doing this to cover up some tracks that I'm laying down," he told her.  

Authorities say Nashaddai was released after a fake motion was filed with the court that appeared at first to have a judge's signature on it.

In trying to convince his wife to find and send him the "papers" he wanted, Nashaddai explains that he knows what he's doing.

"How many times you think I have done this?" he said. "There's not one time I have done this, I've done this several times."

In other calls, he has a conversation with a friend about delivering papers for him, and then contacts the clerk's office pretending to be someone from the state attorney's office checking to see if some documents were filed.

Nashaddai was released, but arrested 16 hours later.
