Jessica Tata Booked Into Harris County Jail

After arriving in Houston early Tuesday morning, fugitive day care operator Jessica Tata was booked into the Harris County Jail.

Tata was not present for a probable cause hearing at 4 a.m. but a magistrate found probable cause to hold her on 13 criminal counts. She was denied bond.

According to journalists waiting at the jail for Tata, she was wearing a body armor vest as she was escorted into the jail by several investigators with the Gulf Coast Violent Offenders and Fugitive Task Force.

Tata fled to Nigeria after a fire killed four children in her care on February 24.

Tata will be kept in a single person cell while at the jail. That action is taken for the safety of  any prisoner like Tata who is considered a high-profile inmate.
