A woman who escaped from sheriffs' custody in St. John's last month plans to plead guilty to that charge.

Kimberly Ann Parkinson made her getaway on May 6 — her 39th birthday — while she was being brought back to the lockup with a group of prisoners.

Parkinson was caught the following day.

Her lawyer told the court Wednesday morning that Parkinson will be pleading guilty to the escape as well as theft charges.

She will be back in court on June 21.

Parkinson already has an eight-page criminal record, mostly for theft and shoplifting. She has also been in court for numerous breaches of court orders and probation.
