  • A Lansing Correctional Facility inmate will have to serve an additional 20 months in prison for escaping in 2012.
    Gary L. Furthmyer, 61, was sentenced Friday in Leavenworth County District Court for aggravated escape from custody.
    Furthmyer walked away from his job assignment at a steam plant in April 2012 while incarcerated at LCF. He was apprehended May 9, 2012, in Kansas City, Kan.
    Furthmyer has been serving a sentence for Sedgwick County convictions for indecent liberties with a child and aggravated failure to appear. His earliest possible release date for that sentence is Oct. 1.
    The 20-month sentence for the escape will run consecutive to the earlier sentence.
