A woman who escaped prison back in March pleaded guilty at the Stark County Courthouse on Monday.

Monique Muniz was sentenced to 360 days for escaping the Southwest Multi-County Correctional Center in Dickinson, ND  and possession of methamphetamine paraphernalia.

Back on March 2, Muniz  failed to return to the correctional center while on work release, and was located in Dickinson almost two weeks later.

As part of the plea deal, the states attorney dropped the A Misdemeanor Accomplices charge against Muniz.

The charges will be added on to her current sentence.

Before her escape, she was serving time for crimes she committed in Belfield in 2017, when she eluded police and got into an accident while evading them.

At the time of her arrest in 2017 she was in possession methamphetamine.

She pleaded guilty to six misdemeanor counts: Leaving Scene Of Accident Involving Vehicle Damage, Driving While License Privilege Is Suspended, False Reports To Law Enforcement Or Other Security Officials, Fleeing or Attempting to Elude a Police Officer, Possession of controlled substance methamphetamine,  Reckless Endangerment.
