CHESAPEAKE, Va. (AP) - Three Chesapeake inmates will spend additional time behind bars for helping another prisoner to escape.
The Virginian-Pilot reports that Michael E. Darnell and Travis Christian each received a six-month sentence and a $500 fine on Monday in circuit court.
Thomas M. Evans received a three-month sentence and a $250 fine.
Evans and Christian had pleaded guilty to felony escape charges in October, while Darnell was convicted following a bench trial. The charges later were reduced to misdemeanors because of a paperwork error.
The inmate who escaped, Dan Starling, was sentenced earlier this month to an additional five years for escape and two years for a probation violation.
Starling's escape from the Chesapeake Correctional Center last June prompted the firing of two deputies. Three other deputies were disciplined.
