WSIL -- A 28-year-old woman, who pleaded guilty to helping one of the three men who escaped from the White County jail last month, has been sentenced. Carly Schmittler, of Grayville, was sentenced to four years in prison.

Schmittler admitted to helping Justin Bray escape from the White County Jail by coordinating a rendezvous with him following his escape and then providing him a vehicle.

Schmittler was charged with Class 3 felony aiding escape of a felon from an institution as well as misdemeanor concealing a fugitive. She pleaded guilty to the felony charge and the misdemeanor was dismissed.

Shock and Tipton were captured over the weekend. Tipton was initially being held for theft. Shock was being held for murder.
