Convicted bank robber Kenneth Conley is ready to plead guilty to jail escape charges.

Conley and another inmate slid down a rope made of bed sheets in a daring escape from the metropolitan correctional center last December.

The other inmate was quickly captured.

Conley was on the run until police caught up with him in January in Palos Hills.

The U.S. attorney's office says Conley plead guilty to jail escape charges in court in October.
