A Natrona County man serving time on a drug possession conviction, has had more time added on to his sentence.

Forty-four year old Lester Brown Junior was given an additional 18-to-24 months in prison, after pleading guilty to one charge of escape.

The sentence is being added on to the three-and-one-half to five years that he was in the middle of serving, for meth possession and delivery of a controlled substance.

Prosecutors say in November, brown serving part of his original sentence at the Casper Re-Entry Center, when he failed to return from job hunting.

He was originally sentenced in 2012, after he was stabbed, for shorting several co-defendants on a drug deal.
