  • A judge has sentenced an inmate to about 11 years for escaping from the Ottawa County jail.
    Kansas Attorney General Derek Schmidt says in a release that 22-year-old Drew Edward Wade of Topeka was sentenced to 136 months after pleading guilty to the escape charge in January. Wade was ordered to serve the 11-year sentence consecutively to the seven years he's serving for previous convictions in Shawnee County.
    Wade and four other inmates escaped from the Ottawa jail in April 2012. A second inmate, Eric James, was sentenced in July to 18 years in federal prison for carjacking charges related to the escape.
    The other two inmates haven't been sentenced yet.
