Former Fugitive enters plea to escape charges

 Man located by Federal Marshals after being on the run for 10 months
CAMBRIDGE, Ohio -- A Cambridge man, who was recently among Guernsey County's most wanted, has entered a plea to escape charges.
27-year-old Chris Tuckosh plead guilty to a felony two count of escape in Guernsey County Common Pleas Court on Monday.  Tuckosh was captured by U.S. Marshals in Lorain County in late October.  He had been on the run for 10 months after failing to return from a furlough issued by Common Pleas Court around the Christmas holiday last year.
Tuckosh had been previously charged with and convicted of felony counts of assault and having a weapon while under disability.  He had not been sentenced for those crimes before becoming a fugitive.  He is facing a maximum of 8 years in prison on the escape charge and will be sentenced on December 10th.  Tuckosh was denied bond, as he is considered a flight risk.
