United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, man convicted of Escape from Custody was sentenced on May 12, 2017, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.
Martin Garreau, age 23, was sentenced to 4 months of imprisonment and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Garreau was charged on November 16, 2016, and pleaded guilty on February 3, 2017. The conviction stems from Garreau leaving Community Alternatives of the Black Hills, where he was serving part of his federal prison sentence, without permission and failing to return.
This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah B. Collins prosecuted the case.
Garreau was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
