Tordale Chatman Pleads Guilty in Pike County Jail Escape
(LOUISIANA)-- A Louisiana man says he’s guilty of helping three jail escapees.
Tordale Chatman admitted Thursday to three felony counts of hindering prosecution and was sentenced to five years of probation. Authorities said five men broke out of the Pike County Jail last September. Chatman admitted driving three of the men from Bowling Green to Louisiana that night.
Four of the escapees have been sentenced to prison terms, but one suspect is awaiting trial. William Wilkerson is scheduled to go before a jury in October.
