By LAURA ERNDE / Staff Writer
A Hagerstown woman who helped a man escape from Maryland Correctional Training Center was sentenced to four years' probation Thursday.
Tammy Marie Carter, 33, of 211 Buena Vista Ave., had faced up to 10 years in prison for the March 8 escape.
"I'm really sorry for everything that happened," Carter told Washington County Circuit Court Judge Donald E. Beachley.
Carter picked up George Malcolm Brown, 34, who was serving a 10-year sentence for a Baltimore armed robbery, outside the MCTC fence south of Hagerstown, court records show.
She took him to Winchester, Va., but Brown later made his way to Florida, where he spent more than 20 days before being recaptured by police, authorities said.
