The convictions stem from the same incident, the Escape charge occurred on April 4, 2016, and the Failure to Register as a Sex Offender violation occurred on April 7, 2016.  On April 4, 2016, Makes Room For Them escaped from custody of the Bureau of Prisons at the Community Alternatives of the Black Hills (CABH), where he was lawfully confined upon conviction for a federal felony offense.  Makes Room For Them left the CABH and did not return to the facility as required. Makes Room For Them was convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact in September 2005.  As a result of this conviction, he is required to register as a sex offender. Makes Room For Them was aware of his obligation to update his sex offender registration and failed to do so.  Following his escape from CABH, Makes Room For Them did not update his registration.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.   Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael J. Elmore prosecuted the case.

Makes Room For Them was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
