North Dakota man who failed to show up at halfway house set to be sentenced on escape charge


BISMARCK, North Dakota — A man who was sent to prison for breaking into a Spirit Lake Indian Reservation post office is scheduled be sentenced for failing to continue his sentence at a halfway house.

Robert Redroad Jr., of St. Michael, is charged with escape from custody. Federal authorities say Redroad failed to show up at the Lake Region Law Enforcement Center in Devils Lake in October after he was released from a federal prison in West Virginia.

Redroad was sentenced in April 2013 to 30 months in prison on charges of burglary of a post office and conspiracy to commit bank fraud. Authorities say he stole a U.S Treasury check from the post office in Tokio.

Sentencing is scheduled Monday in Bismarck.

A federal public defender could not be reached for comment.
