Escaped con to spend extra year behind bars

Story PictureAn escaped convict who turned himself into prison officials has been sentenced to an additional year behind bars. When thirty-five year old Gilbert Requeña appeared in court this morning, Magistrate Dorothy Flowers specified that the extra twelve months will run consecutively, which means instead of just serving eighteen years for manslaughter, Requeña is now facing nineteen. The inmate turned himself into police in Silk Grass village on Sunday, December twenty-third after being on the run since mid-October. He and three others escaped from the facility by using a hacksaw to cut the bars of their cell. The only prisoner that remains at large is Allan Cal who had been serving a twenty-five year sentence for Manslaughter.
