A prisoner who escaped from the James A. Musick Branch Jail on Monday night was the sixth prisoner to flee the minium-security facility this year. Jose Garivay, 25, who was serving a term for burglary, was seen fleeing the grounds by another prisoner shortly after 8:30 p.m. An initial search by Orange County sheriff's deputies failed to turn up the missing prisoner and a subsequent head count determined that the escapee was Garivay.
