Davenport Man Sentenced to Prison for Escape

DAVENPORT, IA- On October 20, 2016, Vincent Salvitory Brocato, age 35, of Davenport, Iowa, was sentenced by District Court Judge Rebecca Goodgame Ebinger to fourteen months imprisonment after pleading guilty to escape, announced United States Attorney Kevin E. VanderSchel. Brocato was ordered to serve three years of supervised release following his prison term and to pay $100 towards the Crime Victims’ Fund.

In December 2015, Brocato was transferred to the Davenport Residential Re-Entry Center to serve the remainder of a federal sentence from a conviction for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. On April 6, 2016, Brocato was advised that he was placed on restriction after violating the Residential Re-Entry Center rules. Without authorization, Brocato left and did not return. A federal complaint was filed and an arrest warrant obtained for escape. On April 13, 2016, a Davenport Police Department officer made contact with a subject in VanderVeer Park, identified him as Brocato and placed him under arrest.

This matter was investigated by the United States Marshals Service and the Davenport Police Department. The case was prosecuted by the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Iowa.
