A man who escaped from the Kemper-Neshoba Regional Jail last spring and committed other crimes was back in court Tuesday.
The sentencing hearing for 23-year-old Adrian Larry was held in Meridian because of a scheduling mix-up.
After he was captured, Larry was charged with escape, burglary, aggravated assault, and auto theft in Kemper County.
In exchange for pleading guilty to burglary and aggravated assault against 89-year-old Louise Hull, the other two charges were dropped.
'I'm just glad that this is not a murder conviction," said the victim's son, Dewayne Hull. "We're just glad my mother is living. She's a very strong person, a strong Christian person. She just hates this happened. I hate this happened."
Larry got 20 years for the burglary and 17.5 years for aggravated assault. Both sentences must be served day-for-day, because Larry is an habitual offender.
