An Albuquerque woman who escaped from custody while being treated at UNM hospital has been sentenced for stealing a car.
We first introduced you to Valerie Guzman in February, when she escaped.
Guzman called KOB to tell us she was able to get away because a guard fell asleep at the hospital.
Our story was played in court before Guzman was sentenced Wednesday on the auto theft charges.
She was sentenced to 11 years.
A sentencing date for the escape has not yet been set.
