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 December 9, 2013, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Eric Ladeaux, age 27, was sentenced to 2 years in custody, 3 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.   
Ladeaux was indicted by a federal grand jury on September 25, 2012.  He pled guilty on February 14, 2013.
In September 2012, Ladeaux left the Community Alternatives of the Black Hills where he was serving the remainder of a federal prison sentence, and he did not return as required.

The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah B. Collins.
Ladeaux was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
