A woman accused of helping a man escape from the Big Sandy Federal Penitentiary in Martin County is sentenced in federal court.
Investigators say Witherspoon helped inmate Desmond Greene leave the prison in October.
Officials say she came back to the prison several hours later asking for help because Greene was unresponsive in her car.
He later died.
The cause of death is not determined.
