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.

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.
