JUNEAU – A 31-year-old Dodge Correctional inmate was sentenced to two years in prison for escaping from Dodge County Jail last fall.

Dylan Farber was found guilty of escape and fleeing or eluding an officer in January.

Farber appeared before Dodge County Circuit Court Judge Steven Bauer. Farber was sentenced to two years of initial confinement and two years of an extended sentence concurrent to the sentence he is currently serving for charges including battery or threat to a judge, prosecutor or law enforcement officer. In addition, he must maintain absolute sobriety and submit to random drug screening. He may have no controlled substances without a medical diagnosis. He also must undergo an AODA assessment and counseling as determined by his agent.

Farber, from Fox Lake, led law enforcement in the area on a manhunt for about 12 hours Oct. 13 before he was located in a residential area in Wauwatosa.

According to the criminal complaint regarding the escape, Farber may have hid in a medical observation cell or a visiting booth for about two hours before fleeing. Farber burst out the door of Pod J when it had been opened to let a Huber work release inmate into the facility. The correctional officer did not see Farber, but a Huber inmate and another inmate told him what had happened. Farber did not have Huber privileges.

The correctional officer ran outside and saw Farber running east. He was wearing the jail attire of khaki pants, green shirt and orange shoes. Farber later stole a vehicle in Juneau.
