Memorial Day escapee Donald White had multiple court dates this past week


CLEARFIELD – One of the Memorial Day escapees from the Clearfield County Jail had two court appearances this week.

County Judge Paul Cherry ruled on Wednesday and Thursday that 46-year-old Donald White of Brockway will now face multiple charges related to his escape, and a prior plea agreement which gave him only a four-month prison sentence has been withdrawn.

Charges against White now include escape, fleeing or attempting to elude police, theft, reckless endangerment, kidnapping, strangulation and numerous summary offenses related to a high-speed, seven-mile chase in Clearfield and Elk Counties on June 17th.

White and Robert Miller Jr. escaped from the Clearfield County Jail when they fled from a grass-cutting work detail.

Both men were recaptured in June.
