For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Susan Lehr announced that Kiana M. Stabler, 27, of Lincoln, Nebraska, was sentenced on April 11, 2024, in federal court in Lincoln for escape from custody. Senior United States District Judge John M. Gerrard sentenced Stabler to time served, as she was in custody since August 24, 2023. There is no parole in the federal system.  Stabler was also sentenced to a 3-year term of supervised release, which will run concurrent to her previous case.

Stabler was previously convicted of conspiracy to commit robberies of federally insured banks and was sentenced to 84 months of imprisonment on July 6, 2018.  During her term of imprisonment, Stabler was placed at Dismas Charities, Inc., a residential reentry facility located in Kearney, Nebraska.  While assigned to that facility, Stabler secured a social pass on July 20, 2023, where she was ordered to return that same evening.  Stabler failed to return to the facility and was later arrested on August 24, 2023.

This case was investigated by the United States Marshals Service.
