Downtown prison escapee sentenced to 20 years

One of the two men who made that dramatic escape from a federal jail in the Loop six months ago was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Kenneth Conley will serve that  time for bank robbery charges.

Conley was awaiting sentencing when he and a fellow inmate escaped from the 17th floor of the Metropolitan Correctional Center by using a rope made of bedsheets.

Conley’s attorney asked for nine to 11 years, but the judge said Conley’s brazen escape, along with the armed robbery warrants the lengthy sentence.
