Escaped inmate sentenced

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - An inmate who escaped from a lockup in Lawton last year, and was captured five days later in an Oklahoma City church has been sentenced for the escape. Joshua Myers was sentenced to ten more years in prison for breaking out of the Lawton Community Correctional Center last August.

After his escape, Myers made his way to Oklahoma City, where he broke into a church, but was chased away by the pastor, who also fired a couple of shots in Myers’ direction. Police found Myers hiding in a nearby garden, and arrested him.
