(Neb.)-North Dakota Woman Pleads Guilty In Sidney Jail Escape

By: Chris Fankhauser Posted at: 11/07/2012 12:34 PM

     SIDNEY, Neb. (AP) - A 29-year-old North Dakota woman has pleaded guilty to escaping from a jail in western Nebraska.
     Kayla Payne, of Mandan, N.D., made the plea in Garden County District Court after prosecutors agreed to drop a charge in nearby Cheyenne County. She'd been charged there with being a felon in possession of a firearm.
     Prosecutors say Payne was being held in Garden County Jail, awaiting trial in Cheyenne County, when she escaped on Sept. 23 by climbing a jail fence.
     Payne was found about two hours later in the basement of an abandoned building about a block from the jail.
