DENVER — A man who escaped from the Jefferson County jail in 2014 has been convicted of 32 felony counts stemming from crimes he committed during the 10 days he was on the loose.

The Denver Post reports (http://goo.gl/Esrexr ) 34-year-old Travis Sandlin was convicted Wednesday and is scheduled to be sentenced March 14. Prosecutors say he stole several vehicles across the Front Range, broke into a number of garages and homes and stole laptops, credit cards and other items after he escaped Oct. 5, 2014.

Sandlin became the first person to escape from the jail when he broke through a small gap in wire fencing encasing an outdoor recreation area and jumped down several roofs.

He was arrested in Boulder on Oct. 15 after he rammed an armored SWAT vehicle with a stolen van.
