S1E7: Back Door Parole

In the final episode Lindsay and John show the evolution of the Utah criminal justice system through a prison escape. Murderer Nick Haworth escaped from the Utah penitentiary after Joseph Smith’s spiritual son and prison guard, Zebulon Jacobs, was overpowered and severely beaten. Haworth was eventually found and returned to prison. What did the law do with those who escaped from prison? Was the legal system in line with the rest of the country, or did Haworth find he was subjected to mountain law?
