Rapid City Man Sentenced For Escape

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, man convicted of Escape from Custody was sentenced on February 4, 2015, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Benjamin Kitteaux, age 26, was sentenced to 6 months in custody and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.   

In August 2014, Kitteaux left Community Alternatives of the Black Hills, where he was serving the remainder of a federal prison sentence, and did not return as required.

The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Ben Patterson.

Kitteaux was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
