Parkersburg Man Sentenced on Escape Charge

CHARLESTON, W.Va. – United States Attorney Mike Stuart announced today that Sean Anthony Nalle, 35, of Parkersburg, was sentenced to six months in federal prison for walking away from a halfway house earlier this year.  The six month term of imprisonment is to run consecutively to Nalle’s 2015 federal sentence.

“Never a good idea,” said United States Attorney Mike Stuart.  “Walking away from a halfway house only gets you more time in federal prison.”

Nalle previously pled guilty and admitted that in February 2020, he left Dismas Charities, Inc., a Bureau of Prisons residential reentry facility, without permission and did not return. He had been confined at Dismas because of a previous federal gun crime conviction.

The U.S. Marshals Service conducted the investigation. Senior United States District Judge John T. Copenhaver, Jr. imposed the sentence.  Assistant United States Attorney Negar Kordestani handled the prosecution.
