Killer gets 7 years for jail escape

By The Associated Press

This article was published November 7, 2012 at 7:31 a.m.

— A convicted killer serving a 60-year prison sentenced has been sentenced to an additional seven years in prison for escape from a county jail.

The Texarkana Gazette reported that Cortez Rashod Hooper was sentenced Tuesday in Miller County Circuit Court.

Hooper pleaded guilty to the May 28 escape as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors.

Hooper was being held on a murder charge when authorities say he and another inmate used a hacksaw they had been provided to cut through the bars of their cell window and escape the Miller County jail.

Both escapees were recaptured May 31 and Hooper pleaded guilty in August to the murder charge in the 2011 shooting death of a Texarkana man.

60 + 7= a full sentence term with no parole or "good time now". That should be the law.
