 A Calistoga man jailed for commercial robbery and felony domestic violence pleaded no contest this week to escaping from the North County Detention facility north of Santa Rosa in December. Devin Patrick Dwyer, 20, was 1.5 months into a 12-month term in
the Sonoma County jail when he slipped away from a work crew on Dec. 16, 2009, and fled in a waiting vehicle, the district attorney’s office said.  He was found five days later in Windsor in a car driven by the domestic violence victim, who had also helped him escape from the jail, the district attorney’s office said. Dwyer admitted at his Tuesday hearing that he had a prior strike
for felony domestic violence due to the March 14, 2009, incident for which he was serving time. He faces eight years and 10 months in prison on the domestic violence and escape cases when he is sentenced Sept. 28, the Sonoma County District Attorney’s Office said. The driver was convicted of being an accessory and sentenced to 90 days in jail. Dwyer also was convicted of burglary, possession of a deadly weapon and possession of burglary tools in 2009.
