A jailbreaker who bafflingly escaped with just four months left to serve on his sentence has been imprisoned by judges for a further 40 years.
Luckless Shunekndrick Huffman busted out of the Central Mississippi Correctional Facility on 25th August last year but was back in his cell within hours.
The 21-year-old inmate had been serving a seven-year sentence for aggravated assault but was due for release in December.
Following his escape, he broke into a nearby home and held the owner and their two daughters at gunpoint.
After keeping the terrified family members hostage for several hours, he stole a car from one of them but had to flee on foot after crashing the vehicle.
He was caught almost instantly hiding in a dumpster at Mississippi State Hospital in Whitfield, just two miles from the jail.
On 31st July, a judge sentenced Huffman to 60 years in the custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections after he pleaded guilty to two counts of kidnapping.
Two thirds of his sentence must be served in the state prison, the Rankin County District Attorney’s office reported.
