CLARKSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A New Jersey woman has been sentenced to two years of probation for helping an inmate escape.

Jamie Angela Clayton of Edgewater, New Jersey, will spend the first four months of probation on home detention with electronic monitoring.

The Exponent Telegram (http://bit.ly/1K7aLH1 ) reports that the 39-year-old Clayton was sentenced Monday in U.S. District Court in Clarksburg.

Clayton pleaded guilty previously to assisting 43-year-old Eugene Nicholas Cobbs escape from a federal prison camp in Morgantown in 2013.

At the time of his escape, Cobbs was serving more than 12 years for conspiracy to distribute cocaine.

Cobbs pleaded guilty in August 2014 to escape and received an additional year and two months in prison. He is in custody at Fort Dix Federal Correction Institution in New Jersey.
