A woman was found guilty Wednesday in Columbia County Circuit Court of walking away as a Huber inmate.
Amanda Montroy of Packwaukee, 28, pleaded no contest in Columbia County Circuit Court Wednesday after being charged with felony escape in October. She was sentenced to two years probation and $518 in costs. Montroy must follow any treatment recommendations.

She was supposed to return by 7 a.m. She had punched out of work around 6 a.m. and had not returned to jail by 11:30 a.m.
She returned to custody later that month.
