MARIETTA, Okla. (AP) - A Texas convict and a former Love County jailer who helped him escape are both heading to prison.

A Love County judge this week sentenced 33-year-old Bradley Taylor and 36-year-old Tina Marie Smith after each pleaded guilty to state felony charges.

A Sunset, Texas, resident, Taylor was serving as a jail trusty on March 10 when he left the jail to take trash to a trash bin. Authorities say Smith, a part-time jail employee, picked him up, and the two fled to Texas. The pair was arrested two days later in Bowie, Texas.

Taylor was sentenced to three years in prison for escape, while Smith was sentenced to two years in prison followed by three years of probation.

    I agree they needed more time. More will try to escape if all they are going to get is 3 years.

    THEY NEEDED MORE TIME. THAT IS JUST A SLAP ON THE WRIST. IF THAT SHERIFF WANTED TO FILE MORE CHARGES HE COULD HAVE IF NOT HE NEEDS A BETTER DA. TEXAS COULD HAVE GOT THEM WITH CHARGES LIKE HARBORING A FUGITIVE. THAT LOOKS REAL BAD ON LOVE COUNTY I HAVE HEARD ABOUT THE SHERIFF THEY SAY HE IS A NICE MAN. THEY SHOULD HAVE LOOKED DEEPER INTO THE SITUATION.

    Wow, when the bryan county jail Administrator helps an inmate escape, they only prosecute the inmate. The man in charge goes free, even when the inmate murders someone while he is loose.
