MINNEAPOLIS -- A Minnesota man has pleaded guilty to escaping from a federal prison in Duluth last March.
Gerald James Greenfield, 67, of Bloomington admitted in federal court Tuesday to leaving the Federal Prison Camp in Duluth without authorization on March 30, 2013.
Greenfield and a fellow inmate were discovered missing during an evening headcount at the prison.
Authorities said tips helped them track the men to a hotel a few days after they escaped. They were arrested without incident.
Greenfield faces a potential maximum penalty of five years in prison, which could be added to his current sentence.
