SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) A 43-year-old inmate again has been listed as escaped from a work release facility in Sioux City.
Officials at the Sioux City Residential Treatment Facility said Friday that David Kreider remains free. Kreider was listed as escaped after he didn't return as scheduled from his overnight shift job on Thursday morning. He's serving a 20-year sentence for willful injury and other crimes. He was convicted of stabbing a man in October 2004.
In July last year, Kreider left the center without permission. He was found two days later by U.S. marshals and subsequently convicted of voluntary absence.
Prisons spokesman Fred Scaletta says Kreider was given another opportunity for work release because officials perceived that Kreider's behavior had improved.
