Prison Escapee Gets 3 Years
LAFAYETTE, La. (AP) — A 36-year-old man has been sentenced to 36 months in prison and two years of supervised release for stealing a car and driving to Florida after escaping from a prison road crew.
U.S. Attorney Stephanie A. Finley said Friday that Shawn Jollivette, of Scott, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Elizabeth E. Foote for one count of interstate transportation of a motor vehicle. He was also ordered to pay $197 in restitution.
Evidence presented at the June guilty plea shows Jollivette escaped a road crew work detail on March 27, 2012, in Marksville. He was arrested in Florida two days later with keys to a stolen vehicle in his possession. A gun was also found in the car, which was located in a parking lot.
