Fugitive Mom Charged in Mich. Prison Escape

The news for Susan LeFevre got a little bit worse on Monday.

The former Carmel Valley resident, who was arrested 32 years after fleeing a Michigan prison on a drug conviction, was charged today by Michigan authorities with escape.

LeFevre, 53, who is already back in Michigan serving at least 5 1/2 years of her remaining sentence for selling heroin, couldd receive another five years behind bars or probation if convicted of the escape charge.

LeFevre, who is married and the mother of three, had served approximately one year of a 10- to 20-year sentence before walking out of jail in 1976.

She assumed a new identity, Marie Walsh, in San Diego and raised a family, before someone turned her in to authorities earlier this year.
