Md. inmate’s sentencing for escape postponed

OAKLAND — A Maryland prison inmate will wait a little longer to be sentenced for his violent escape from an outdoor work crew in Garrett County.

A winter storm prompted the postponement Monday of the sentencing in Oakland of 40-year-old Larry Johnson.

He could get life plus 70 years added to his prison term for escape, carjacking and attempted first-degree murder.

Johnson left a highway work crew in September 2012 and used a pair of pliers to stab a correctional officer in the torso. He then got behind the wheel of a prison van, wrecked that vehicle, flagged down a motorist, stabbed him in the head, stole his car and hit a tree.

Johnson was serving a 20-year sentence for carjacking and handgun convictions in Prince George’s County.
