HENDERSON, Ky (WEHT) – James Lee, one of two inmates that escaped from a Lima, Ohio prison back in May, pleads guilty as part of accepting a plea deal.
Lee was scheduled to appear in court on Monday.
Lee along with Bradley Gillespie escaped from the Allen-Oakwood Correctional Institution back in May. Their run ended in Henderson when police identified the stolen car they were driving.
Lee was captured after a foot chase. Gillespie avoided capture, but his body was pulled from the Ohio River five days later.
