CLOVIS, NM (KCBD) - A man charged with aiding two Clovis escapees is sentenced to prison. 

Abundio Valdez, 34, of Clovis, pleaded guilty to two counts of assisting escape and two counts of harboring or aiding a felon. Valdez was sentenced to 15 years in prison.

The incident stems from last August when eight inmates escaped from the Curry County Detention Center in Clovis. Valdez was arrested in December and charged with assisting escapees Louis Chavez and Edward Salas.
