A Maryland prison inmate faces sentencing for his violent escape from a crew working along Interstate 68 in Garrett County.
Forty-year-old Larry Johnson could get a life sentence plus 70 years added to his prison term at the sentencing Monday in Oakland. A jury convicted him in October of escape, carjacking and attempted first-degree murder.
Johnson left a highway work crew in September 2012 and used a pair of pliers to stab a correctional officer in the torso. He then got behind the wheel of a prison van, wrecked that vehicle, flagged down a motorist, stabbed him in the head and stole his car.
Maryland State Police caught Johnson after he hit a tree.
Johnson was serving a 20-year sentence for carjacking and handgun convictions in Prince George's County.
