A Little Hocking man will spend almost a decade behind bars for crimes he initially ran from, and resulted in a manhunt across several states.

The Washington County Prosecutor's office says Patrick Slider was sentenced to nine years in prison Friday morning in Marietta Municipal Court on drug possession, trafficking and theft charges.

This sentencing stems from a plea agreement reached last year on drug and trafficking charges.

Slider was facing the charges following an incident in March of 2008 where authorities say he stole pills from Stericycle, a company that discards controlled substances for hospitals and nursing homes, but he fled before going to trial for those charges.

That lead police on a manhunt across several states, ending in his arrest in September, in Michigan.

Slider will be facing other charges including aggravated robbery next Thursday in Athens County.
