Two men who broke out of jail will now spend 25 more years behind bars.

Mickey Staggs and Larry Cotton pleaded guilty Monday morning to escape, robbery and battery charges.

Surveillance video from the Wagoner County jail shows the two men luring a jailer into an empty cell in July. Then they beat him up, took his keys and made their escape.

After a 15-hour manhunt, a tip lead officers to Cotton. He was hiding out inside an empty apartment.

Staggs was later caught in a field.
