Former escaped inmate sentenced to 13 years

WHITE COUNTY, IL (KFVS) - A man accused of escaping from the White County jail back in October has pleaded guilty to the original charge against him.

Donald Currier pleaded guilty to a charge of aggravated battery on Jan. 14.

He was sentenced to eight years in the DOC for that one.

He also pleaded guilty to a charge of escape of a felon from a penal institution.

For that he was sentenced to another five years.

Both sentences are consecutive.

So, he'll spend 13 years behind bars all together.
