PICKENS, S.C. (AP) - Sheriff’s deputies in South Carolina are looking for an inmate who escaped from a county jail.

Pickens County Chief Deputy Creed Hashe said in a news release that 45-year-old Steven Leroy Aiken climbed a fence and ran away from the minimum-security jail late Sunday afternoon.

Deputies said Aiken had been serving a four-month sentence for family court violations.

Aiken was awaiting trial on charges of domestic violence and malicious injury to property.
