A man in Embu found himself in trouble on Monday after he tried to escape police custody.
He had earlier been sentenced to a 10-year jail term but had filed an appeal to the decision.
The convict had been¬†delivered to the court for the hearing of the appeal when he tried to escape from police custody.
The unlucky gentleman was re-arrested and arraigned in court where the Judge slapped him with three extra years or a Ksh 50,000 fine on top of his original 10 years sentence.
He was found guilty of trying to evade justice by escaping from lawful custody.
Radio Citizen reported that the¬†appeal case was consequently thrown out as the convict proved that he was¬†not remorseful of his original crime.
When passing the ruling, the judge was quick to warn all those who thought it was easy to evade justice.
This comes a few weeks after another inmate from the Manyani Prison was arrested trying to sneak back to prison.
The prisoner who was said to be mentally unstable had escaped through a drainage pipe that was adjacent to the prison walls.
