Devonte Williams, 20, who broke out of the Mineral County Jail in May, pleaded guilty to an escape charge and was sentenced spend five years in prison.
Williams will be eligible for parole in May 2015.
Williams was initially also charged with conspiracy to escape, although that charge was dropped in exchange for his guilty plea.
Shaiitarrio Brown, the Mineral County man who escaped with Williams, pleaded guilty to escape and conspiracy to escape and was sentenced to nine years in prison.
Brown is currently serving a four-year sentence for possession of a controlled substance. When the men absconded, Brown was in jail awaiting a court date on the drug charge and Williams was awaiting extradition to California where he faced domestic violence charges.
The date for Brown’s parole hearing on the drug charge is scheduled for September. If he’s granted parole at his hearing Brown will not be released, but will start serving his prison term for escape and conspiracy to escape instead.
If he is granted parole on the drug charges next month, he will be eligible for another parole hearing in 2017 for the escape charges. His escape sentences will expire in 2022, if he begins serving them in September.
On May 2 Brown, 18, and Williams used a ladder to escape confinement in the Mineral County Jail. Brown was injured during the escape.
The nearly 24-hour manhunt that followed ended with both escapees being returned to custody.
