SAEGERTOWN, Pa. (AP) - December 18, 2008

Thirty-eight-year-old /*Christopher Stevenson*/, of Oil City, remains in the Crawford County Correctional Facility, where he's been since he was arrested after his last escape on April 7. Wednesday's guilty pleas were entered in a courtroom at that jail because authorities were afraid Stevenson might try to escape again.

Stevenson twice escaped from Titusville police cars on April 5 by kicking out back windows. Two days later he broke a window latch and jumped out of a county sheriff's van traveling 55 mph.

No sentencing date has been set.
