A state Department of Corrections inmate who walked away from his Rock Hill work release site over the summer pleaded guilty to escape this week, according to York County court records.
Richard Keith Poe was sentenced to 91 days in prison to be served concurrent with the sentence he is already serving, court records show. Poe, 47, walked away from a work site in Rock Hill July 10, authorities have said.
His prior sentenced of 13 years in prison stemmed from a second-degree burglary charge. At the time he was accused of escaping, Poe had been assigned to the Catawba Pre-release Center, a minimum security facility in Rock Hill.
Charlotte police arrested Poe the night of July 10.

Poe was the second state inmate to walk away from a Rock Hill work site that week. Bobby Albert Camp III, 25, is accused of walking away from B&B Tire on Riverview Road.
He was apprehended a few days later in Greenville County. Camp still has a pending charge for escape.
