Missouri Man Who Escaped Jail Sentenced to 15 Years For Rape
A 25-year-old man who escaped a Missouri jail cell has been sentenced to 15 years for rape.
The Columbia Daily Tribune reports that Brian J. Adkison was convicted in Boone County in July of raping a woman in 2013. He was sentenced Monday to 15 years in prison. Prosecutors sought a 30-year sentence.
While he was out on bond in the case, Adkison is accused of kidnapping the same woman in Caldwell County. He eventually dropped her off in Columbia and then led authorities on a manhunt near Lake of the Ozarks before they arrested him.
He later escaped from a Caldwell County jail in August 2013 and fled to Ohio, where he was arrested about a month later.
Adkison's lawyer says his client should get a new trial.
