The California mother who was arrested three decades after authorities say she escaped a Michigan prison pled guilty to an escape charge Tuesday. In doing so, Susan LeFevre will be sentenced on Sept. 24 in Wayne County, Michigan.
LeFevre was returned to Michigan earlier this year after authorities were tipped off to her whereabouts. The 53-year-old was married and had raised a family with her husband in San Diego.
LeFevre is presently serving at least 5 1/2 years of what was left on her original sentence in Michigan for selling heroin more than 30 years ago.
Authorities claim LeFevre had only served about one year of a 10- to 20-year sentence before scaling a prison fence in 1976 and starting a life on the run.
