ROCKLAND, Maine — Two men who escaped from prison in November have had three years tacked on to their prison terms for their antics.

On Thursday, Arden Shaw, 37, and Robert Fogg, 28, both pleaded guilty to escaping from the Bolduc Correctional Facility.

Both were returned to the Maine State Prison in Warren after they were sentenced by Justice Jeffrey Hjelm in Knox County Superior Court.

According to Maine State Police Trooper Gerard Madden’s affidavit filed with the court, Shaw was committed to the prison in January 2009. By Nov. 5, 2009, he was transferred to the minimum security Bolduc facility, where he escaped two days later, sometime between 6:45 and 7:45 p.m. before head counts were conducted by correction officers. Before he escaped, Shaw was scheduled to be released from his two counts of burglary by August 2013.

Fogg, according to another affidavit filed by Madden, was committed to Maine State Prison on Jan 9, 2009, for convictions of burglary, theft, eluding an officer and passing a roadblock. By Nov. 5, 2009, Fogg was transferred to the Bolduc facility and was scheduled to be released by June 25, 2013. He escaped sometime be-tween 6:45 and 7:45 p.m. Nov. 7, 2009.

The men were arrested in Rhode Island less than a week later, according to Bangor Daily News reports.

Located near the Maine State Prison in Warren, Bolduc is a minimum-security correctional facility housing up to 150 inmates. Because Bolduc is a low-security prison, it does not have fences on its campuslike grounds.
