Walden Sentenced

An Ozark man will be spending more time behind bars after pleading guilty to additional charges.

Sherman Walden pled guilty to defrauding the Red Cross out of money by claiming to be a hurricane evacuee.

He also pled guilty to jumping bail when he fled to avoid sentencing in September.

Walden was sentenced to 10-years in prison on each count.

Walden was already serving a life sentence for killing two people in a drunken driving accident.

He disappeared the day he was supposed to be sentenced for that offense and it took authorities more than a week to finally track him down.
