On Tuesday in federal court, Gerald James Greenwald specifically pleaded guilty to one count of escape from custody. He was charged on April 29, 2013.

In his plea agreement, Greenwald admitted to on March 30, 2013, he was present for prisoner count at 4 p.m., but was not present for the count at 10 p.m.
