Alderson inmate sentenced to additional year

United States District Judge Irene C. Berger sentenced an inmate of the Federal Prison Camp at Alderson to an additional year in federal prison on Wednesday, announced United States Attorney Carol Casto.

Christina Kimble, 33, who escaped from the Alderson prison in November 2015, was sentenced to a year in prison, to be served consecutively to her current sentence for a federal drug charge. She previously pleaded guilty to escape, admitting that on Nov. 17, 2015, she left the Federal Prison Camp at Alderson without authorization. Kimble was apprehended several hours later by the Alderson Police Department.

Kimble, a resident of Bartow in Pocahontas County, was originally sentenced in May 2015 to 12 months and one day in prison for her role in manufacturing methamphetamine in Pocahontas and Randolph counties. She pleaded guilty to the charge – one count of possession of pseudoephedrine to be used in the manufacture of methamphetamine – in December 2014.

The Federal Bureau of Prisons and the Alderson Police Department conducted the investigation of Kimble. Assistant United States Attorney John File is in charge of the prosecutions
