SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A woman accused of spending $30,000 to help a paroled inmate plan an escape for a prisoner has been sentenced to five years behind bars.

Authorities say Jamie Klinghagen and paroled inmate Lloyd White Face had planned to free Silver McClanahan from the South Dakota State Penitentiary. The plan was foiled by corrections officials in June after McClanahan admitted to lying about a medical problem in an attempt to get an appointment with an out-of-prison doctor.

McClanahan is serving time for manslaughter.

The Argus Leader reports (https://argusne.ws/1B1uCDS) that detectives found a van filled with numerous weapons, bullet-proof vests, camping supplies and food.

The attorney for the 46-year-old Klinghagen says his client was blinded by romantic advances from White Face, who instead planned to run away with McClanahan if he escaped.
