CLOVIS, N.M. (KAMR/KCIT) — A Clovis man found guilty of escaping from the Curry County jail in 2018 and other crimes has been sentenced to 30 years in the New Mexico Department of Corrections.
Ricky Sena, 26, was found guilty of Escape from Jail, Conspiracy to Escape from Jail, Escape from the Custody of a Peace Officer, Aggravated Assault on a Peace Officer with a Deadly Weapon, and Felon in Possession of a Firearm. The jury found that he was not guilty on a charge of Tampering with Evidence.
In June 2018, Sena, along with Victor Apodaca and Aaron Clark, escaped from the Curry County jail through an unlocked door with the help of a detention officer, Sarina Dodson.
Sena, Apodaca, and Clark were found four days later hiding in a Clovis home, resulting in a SWAT standoff.
Apodaca previously pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 16 years. Clark also pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 11 years.
Sena’s sentence will run consecutively to the 11 years that he is already serving in the New Mexico Department of Corrections for Aggravated Battery and Aggravated Fleeing a Law Enforcement Officer.
