8 Escaped South Dakota Convicts Still On The Run
Many times the term 'Placed on Escape Status' is used when an inmate in a South Dakota Department of Corrections (SDDOC) facility walks away or fails to return. Such as leaving a community service job site or work assignment.
South Dakota has six adult correction locations: the South Dakota State Penitentiary, Jameson Annex, Mike Durfee State Prison, South Dakota Women's Prison, Rapid City Community Work Center, and Yankton Community Work Center.
There are currently eight such cases the SDDOC has posted on its website. One is from 2013, and the most recent is from this past February. All are presently at large.
If you or anyone you know has information about these eight individuals you are asked to call law enforcement.
