Carter in court; $50K bond set in escape case
Jared Carter, 32, the man who fled from Robinson Correctional Center this summer, had his initial appearance in Crawford County Circuit Court today.

He is charged with escape, a felony.

Carter walked away from a prison work detail outside the prison walls on Aug. 30. It lead to a five-day manhunt that covered Robinson and parts of Crawford County. He was arrested in Palestine Sept. 3.

Today he was transported from Pontiac Correctional Center, where he is confined. Pontiac is one of the five maximum-security facilities the state maintains.

He appeared in court with five correctional officers.

A $50,000 bond was set, although he will not be eligible for release.

Jay Holtzhouser was appointed as the public defender. He spoke to Carter after the conclusion of the hearing.

Carter was in the Robinson prison on a 2011 Bond County conviction of residential burglary and two counts of burglary. He pleaded guilty to the three counts, and was sentenced to 10 years in prison and restitution.

All three ran concurrently with each other and a Madison County residential burglary charge.

The charge carries a sentence of three to seven years in prison, or seven to 14 if found to be an extended range sentence. It may also carry a fine of up to $25,000.

Carter is next due in court at 11 a.m. Jan. 13.
