The man whose girlfriend helped him escape from jail by posing as a California deputy is spending a year behind bars.
Nicholas Lowe was convicted on Jan. 18 of third-degree escape and sentenced to one year in prison.
Lowe will serve a 5-year suspended sentence upon release. He was given 167 days credit for the time he already served in jail.
Lowe pleaded guilty on Jan. 18, 2019.
Lowe’s girlfriend Maxine Feldstein forged Ventura County, Calif., Sheriff’s Office documents and sent them to the Washington County Detention Center to stop Lowe’s extradition back to California.
At the time, Lowe was being held at the Detention Center on a hold for Ventura County on a local charge of false impersonation.
