Minnesota man serving time for racketeering accused of walking away from Fargo halfway house


FARGO, North Dakota — A man serving time on a racketeering charge is accused of walking away from a Fargo halfway house.

Kieron Kier is charged in federal court with escape from custody. Authorities say he was signed out from Centre Inc. on a weekend pass in November and never returned.

Kier was arrested on Jan. 13 in White Earth, Minnesota.

Kier was convicted for conspiracy to participate in racketeering activities and sentenced in July 2013 to more than three years in prison.

Arraignment on the escape charge is scheduled Thursday in Fargo. A federal public defender was not available for comment.
