Rapid City Man Charged With Escape From Custody

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota man was indicted by a federal grand jury for escaping from the Community Alternatives of the Black Hills, where he was serving the remainder of a federal sentence.

Floyd Francis Bullman, age 41, was indicted on January 23, 2013 for Escape from Custody. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on January 31, 2013 and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 5 years' imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine. The charge is merely an accusation and Bullman is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Kelderman is prosecuting the case. Bullman was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has not been set.
