Escapee from Clearfield County Jail faces up to five years in prison

CLEARFIELD – One of the men who escaped from the Clearfield County Jail on Memorial Day and was found weeks later hiding under a trailer will spend up to five years in state prison.

Robert Miller pleaded guilty to escape and two other charges in Clearfield County Court last week.

His sentence is 30 months to five years in state prison plus an order to pay more than $2,600 in restitution.

Police captured 51-year-old Miller after they received a tip from a Lawrence Township neighbor who said Miller was hiding in a crawl space underneath his daughter’s trailer home.
