An Albuquerque woman who escaped from custody while being treated at UNM hospital has been sentenced for stealing a car.

We first introduced you to Valerie Guzman in February, when she escaped.

Guzman called KOB to tell us she was able to get away because a guard fell asleep at the hospital.

Our story was played in court before Guzman was sentenced Wednesday on the auto theft charges.

She was sentenced to 11 years.

A sentencing date for the escape has not yet been set.
