Iowa meth-maker who skipped out on halfway house sent back to federal prison

CEDAR RAPIDS – A woman who escaped from federal custody was sentenced on April 15, 2020, to more than four months in federal prison.

Aleania Clendineng, age 35, from Cedar Rapids, Iowa, received the prison term after a February 13, 2020 guilty plea to one count of escape from custody.

At the guilty plea, Clendening admitted she escaped from federal custody by intentionally failing to arrive at a residential reentry center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. On July 25, 2015, Clendening was sentenced to 60 months’ imprisonment for conspiracy to manufacture methamphetamine. On September 3, 2019, she was ordered to travel from a federal prison in Aliceville, Alabama, to the residential reentry center in Cedar Rapids, but never showed up at the center. A month later, Clendineng was arrested in Davenport, Iowa.

Clendineng was sentenced in Cedar Rapids by United States District Court Judge C.J. Williams. Clendening was sentenced to four months and fourteen days’ imprisonment. She must also serve a three-year term of supervised release after the prison term. There is no parole in the federal system.

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