United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota man charged with Escape from Custody was sentenced on May 30, 2013 by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Abraham Yellow Horse, age 24, was sentenced to 15 months' imprisonment and ordered to pay $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

In December 2012, Yellow Horse was serving part of a federal sentence at the Community Alternatives of the Black Hills, when he left without permission and did not return. He pled guilty on February 5, 2013.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service and Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Kelderman prosecuted the case.

Yellow Horse was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
