OC Jail Escapees and Female Accomplices New details have come out about the arrest of Nooshafarin Ravaghi. She’s the woman accused of helping three men break out of an Orange County jail last week. Ravaghi taught English as a second language at the jail. She allegedly developed some kind of personal relationship with one of the escapees, Hossein Nayeri, while he took her classes. Orange County sheriff’s officials say she provided him and the two other men with maps and possibly tools to help them break out. She’s not the only woman recently accused of aiding incarcerated criminals. Two New York prison inmates who escaped in June were helped by a woman who worked at that facility. She allegedly had an affair with one of them. And there’s a long history of women on the outside falling in love with - even seeking out - men behind bars. Why would law-abiding women get involved with accused or convicted criminals?
