FANNIN COUNTY, TX -- A Bonham man who escaped the Fannin County Courthouse is headed to prison.

28-year-old Roger Michael Wooten pleaded guilty to second degree felony of escape causing bodily injury and to possession of a controlled substance.

He'll serve both sentences concurrently.

Bonham police say back in March when Wooten was about to be placed under arrest for violating probation he ran out of the courthouse.

Authorities found him an hour later about six blocks away.
