Rosebud Man Sentenced for Escape

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man convicted of Escape from Custody was sentenced on January 29, 2018, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Marlow Poor Thunder, age 22, was sentenced to 12 months and 1 day of imprisonment, followed by 3 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Poor Thunder was charged on August 22, 2017, and pleaded guilty on October 20, 2017.  The conviction stems from Poor Thunder leaving the Community Education Center, where he was serving part of a federal sentence, without permission and failing to return in August 2017.

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