Inmate Sentenced to Life Following Escape With Help by Alabama Jailer
FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) An Alabama inmate who escaped with help from a jail official who ultimately ended up taking her own life as police closed in was sentenced Thursday to life in prison.
Casey White, 39, told those gathered in the Lauderdale County courtroom that he felt like the most hated man in the world but that he wouldn't drag 56-year-old corrections officer Vicky White's name through the dirt, news outlets reported. He said Vicky White, who was not related to him, was the first person who cared about him in six years.
He apologized for the escape, saying Vicky Whites only regret was leaving behind her family.
