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

          CONCORD, N.H. - Acting United States Attorney John J. Farley announced that Robert Rosploch, 34, formerly of Leicester, Vermont, pleaded guilty today to escape from federal custody.


          According to court documents and statements made in court, on November 16, 2016, Rosploch escaped from a halfway house in Manchester, New Hampshire, by climbing out of a first-floor window. Within hours, Deputy U.S. Marshals located Rosploch on the streets of downtown Manchester, and took him into custody without incident. At the time of his escape, Rosploch was serving a sentence for a previous conviction in Vermont federal court for conspiring to distribute cocaine.


          Rosploch is scheduled to be sentenced on August 24, 2017.


          This matter was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service, and the case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Shane B. Kelbley.
