SIOUX CITY – A woman who escaped from federal custody was sentenced on February 6, 2017, to 4 months in federal prison.

Jade Kiya Harden, age 24, from Sioux City, received the prison term after a November 1, 2016, guilty plea to one count of escape from federal custody.

At the plea hearing, Harden admitted that she had been in the custody of Dismas Charities Residential Reentry Center (RRC), and on home confinement with electronic monitoring since May 27, 2016. On August 12, 2016, she cut off her electronic monitoring bracelet and left her residence. Subsequent to her August 12, 2016 escape, Harden was arrested by United States Marshals in Winnebago.

Harden was sentenced in Sioux City by Chief United States District Court Judge Leonard T. Strand. Harden was sentenced to 4 months’ imprisonment. A special assessment of $100 was imposed. She must also serve a 2-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

Harden is being held in the United States Marshal’s custody until she can be transported to a federal prison.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Kevin C. Fletcher and investigated by United States Marshals Office.
