Salem Man Pleads Guilty to Escape

             CONCORD - Liam Delorey, 37, of Salem, pleaded guilty in federal court to escape, United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced today.

             According to court documents and statements made in court, Delorey had been in federal custody since 2017.  He was serving a sentence for violating the terms of his supervised release following a federal felony conviction for narcotics distribution.  In May of 2018, he was transferred from a Bureau of Prisons facility to a residential reentry center in Manchester, New Hampshire, to start pre-release programming.  On June 18, 2018, the defendant signed out of the center to go to work.  Although he knew he was required to return by 8:00 p.m. that night, he did not do so.  His whereabouts were unknown until he self-surrendered to the U.S. Marshals in Concord, New Hampshire on the evening of June 19, 2018.

            Delorey is scheduled to be sentenced on November 8, 2018.

            This matter was investigated by the United States Marshals Service.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Anna Dronzek.
