Teen gets year in jail for role in Victor Cullen Center escape

September 15, 2009

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) -- One of nine juvenile offenders charged in a violent escape from a state-run detention center near Sabillasville has been sentenced to a year in jail for his role in the incident.

Sixteen-year-old Davantay Sanders, of Baltimore, was sentenced after pleading guilty Monday in Frederick to second-degree escape and fourth-degree burglary.

He is the fourth defendant to plead guilty in the May 27 escape of 14 youths from the Victor Cullen Center.

Prosecutors say Sanders helped keep a set of handcuffs away from staff members who were trying to restrain a youth at the start of the incident.

They say Sanders also helped break into a locked building to get tools that were used to cut a perimeter fence.
