United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Escape from Custody.

Kane Youngman, age 21, was indicted on August 23, 2016.  Youngman appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Daneta Wollmann on October 12, 2016, and pleaded not guilty to the Indictment.
