PITTSBURGH – A Fayette County woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh for escaping from federal custody following a prior federal felony conviction, Acting United States Attorney Soo C. Song announced today.

The one-count indictment named Tiffany Lilley, age 28, as the sole defendant.

According to the indictment, Lilley escaped from federal custody at Renewal Incorporated Community Correction Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on March 28, 2017.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of 5 years in prison, a fine of $250,000 or both. Under the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offense and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

Assistant United States Attorney Conor Lamb is prosecuting this case on behalf of the government.

The United States Marshals Service conducted the investigation leading to the indictment in this case.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
