  • A man who's already been sentenced for escaping from the Leavenworth County Jail in December has pleaded no contest to an aiding and abetting charge in another case.
    Raheem Armstead, 30, entered the plea Friday in Leavenworth County District Court. He pleaded no contest to aiding and abetting someone in fleeing or attempting to elude a law enforcement officer in June 2012. Four other charges were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.
    The same plea agreement resulted in the earlier resolution of his escape case as well as a drug paraphernalia charge in another case. He's been sentenced to more than four years in these two cases.
    Sentencing for the aiding and abetting charge is scheduled for May 10.
    Armstead escaped from the County Jail Dec. 29. At the time, he was a jail trusty. He escaped on foot when he and other trusties were escorted outside to dispose of trash. He was apprehended Dec. 31 at a Leavenworth residence.
