JBCC escapee gets more prison time

McALESTER — An inmate who escaped form the Jackie Brannon Correctional Center in McAlester got more prison time added to his sentence.

Alvin Dale Boyer, 27, pleaded guilty April 11 in Pittsburg County District Court to one felony count of escaping from the Oklahoma Department of Corrections.

Boyer was fined $150 and sentenced five years in prison, to be served after he completes his current 2,982-day prison sentence, which he began serving in 2011.

According to court records, Boyer escaped from JBCC on Oct. 26 and was captured Nov. 12. Boyer was taken into custody by the Newton County Sheriff’s Office, according to former JBCC Warden’s Assistant Laurie Martin. “He was arrested at approximately 2:40 p.m. at a residence in Joplin, Missouri, by Newton County Sheriff’s deputies,” Martin told the News-Capital back in November. “Deputies located the offender hiding in the attic of a residence. Boyer was taken into custody without incident.”

Boyer began serving time at JBCC on Sept. 22, 2011, according to the DOC website at www.doc.state.ok.us. In July of 2011, Boyer was sentenced to serve 2,982 days for multiple firearm and drug related felony convictions. According to the DOC website, Boyer was set to be released on Aug. 21, 2019, prior to this recent conviction, and he has a parole hearing set in January of 2014. He is currently housed at the Lawton Correctional Facility.
