For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, man convicted of Escape from Custody was sentenced on January 15, 2016, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Jon Dillon, age 27, was sentenced to 4 months in custody, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Dillon was charged on August 31, 2015, and pleaded guilty on September 18, 2015.

The conviction stems from Dillon, who was serving part of his sentence on home confinement after a federal conviction in 2013, leaving his residence without permission.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Ben Patterson prosecuted the case.

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