Prison Escapees Caught
September 2, 2004, 4:03 PM
A South Dakota official says two female state prison inmates who walked away from a Rapid City work-release program on Monday have been apprehended in Illinois.
Jamie Lambertz and Teresa Roberts walked away Monday night from Community Alternatives of the Black Hills, where they were housed in a work-release program. Deputy State Corrections Secretary Laurie Feiler says the two were caught Thursday morning in Rockford, Illinois.
The 23-year-old Lambertz was serving a one-year sentence for hit and run with injury and a consecutive two-year sentence for a bad-check conviction in Brookings County.
The 40-year-old Roberts was serving a five-year sentence for violation of a drug-free zone and a concurrent two-year sentence for failure to appear in Lawrence County.
Under South Dakota law, a conviction of escaping from the custody of the state Corrections Department carries a mandatory sentence of at least seven years.
