Woman Sentenced on Escape, Theft Charges

A woman was sentenced in 30th District Court Friday on charges related to her attempted escape from police custody and theft.

Cherissa Sayles received a ten year prison sentence that was suspended to five years probation for the escape conviction and two years in state jail suspended to five years probation for the theft conviction.

Both sentences will be served concurrently.

    In 2016, police tried to arrest sayles on theft charges and say she got into a car in the parking lot of Zoom Zooms #3.

They say the driver of that car drove away when police ordered them to stop, but stopped a short distance away.

Three children were found in the back seat.

    Police said Sayles ran from the car, but later returned to the scene and was arrested.

  About a month before that arrest, officers said Sayles was being transferred at the downtown jail when she escaped.

Officers said they caught her when she entered a car on 5th St.
