PORTSMOUTH, Va. (AP) - An inmate will spend another six months in jail for escaping from a work-release program in Portsmouth.
 
    
31-year-old Anthony Ruffin was sentenced Thursday on the misdemeanor escape charge.
 
    
Portsmouth General District Court Judge Morton V. Whitlow gave Ruffin a 12-month sentence and then suspended six months of the term. Whitlow also fined Ruffin $250.
 
    
Ruffin didn't report to the Portsmouth work release center on Jan. 10. He was arrested by Newport News police about two weeks later.
 
    
Ruffin had several months left to serve on a drug conviction when he escaped.
