Clovis Escapee Sentenced

One of the 8 inmates who escaped from the Curry County Jail last August is sentenced in a New Mexico court.

9th Judicial District Attorney Matthew Chandler says 30 year old Michael England will spend the next 9 1/2 years behind bars. England was sentenced to four years for the escape, and five and a half years for Tampering With Evidence in an unrelated murder case.

England was captured in Clovis more than a month after the escape hiding in an Apartment. All but one of the inmates, Edward Salas, have been captured after the escape.
