Prisoner adds time to his sentence

TEXARKANA, Ark. (AP) - October 13, 2008

James Reid had seven months left of a two-year sentence when he walked away in July.

He pleaded guilty to an escape charge.

A spokeswoman for the Department of Community Correction says the center where Reid was "is like a last chance before being placed in a prison."

She says a lot of inmates there "take that last chance to improve their lives.

Some do not."
