NEW HAVEN MAN SENTENCED TO 15 MONTHS IN
PRISON FOR ESCAPING FROM FEDERAL CUSTODY

Deirdre M. Daly, United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut, today announced that MICHAEL BEVERLY, 37, formerly of New Haven, was sentenced yesterday by Senior U.S. District Judge Ellen Bree Burns in New Haven to 15 months of imprisonment, followed by three years of supervised release, for escaping from federal custody.

According to court documents and statements made in court, on June 17, 2013, BEVERLY escaped from custody in the Watkinson House Residential Reentry Center in Hartford.  BEVERLY was serving a 77-month term of imprisonment imposed following his 2008 conviction in federal court for possession of ammunition by a convicted felon. He was apprehended approximately two weeks later by the U.S. Marshals Service and returned to custody.

The 15-month sentence imposed yesterday will run consecutively to the undischarged term of imprisonment BEVERLY was serving on his 2008 conviction.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service and the New Haven Police Department, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Christopher Mattei.
