LOS ANGELES (AP) - State prison officials say an inmate who walked away from a Los Angeles County re-entry facility where he was finishing out his sentence is back in custody.

The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation said Monday that Donta Baker was captured in Compton March 25, more than a week after his escape.

The 22-year-old was taken to the California Institution for Men in Chino.

Baker was serving a four-year sentence for grand theft.

The Community Re-entry Program is a voluntary program for inmates who have approximately 120 days left to serve.
