Ness County Jail escapee Benito Cardenas, Jr., 38, apologized to his victims and law enforcement officials before being sentenced in back-to-back hearings for a two-day crime spree that occurred after he cut through four bars at the jail in August 2012. After escaping from the Ness County Jail, Cardenas stole a van, burglarized a residence, and accosted two women before surrendering to officers. He was sentenced on September 24, 2013, to 151 months in prison on two counts of aggravated burglary and a single count of aggravated escape, to be served consecutive to his life sentence on unrelated charges.
