Wilson escaped from St. Clair Correctional Facility in 2017, along with inmate Ronald King, who surrendered to authorities.

Antwone Wilson called WBRC in 2017 from a “restricted” number and said he broke out of prison because he’s innocent of the robbery conviction that landed him in prison with a life sentence.
