A Lansing Correctional Facility inmate has been charged with escaping from the prison earlier this year.

Cal Henry Green III is charged with aggravated escape from custody and theft, according to County Attorney Todd Thompson.

Green, 36, is accused of stealing a dump truck while escaping from the state prison Jan. 7. He was apprehended Jan. 10 in Independence, Missouri.

Green appeared Friday in Leavenworth County District Court. His next court appearance is scheduled for April 19, according to Thompson.

Green is serving a sentence at LCF following an aggravated battery conviction in Wyandotte County, according to a Kansas Department of Corrections website.

He was sentenced for the charge in 2014. His earliest possible release date is June 2023. But this date does not reflect additional prison time he could receive if he is convicted of the charges he now faces in Leavenworth County.
