LAFAYETTE, La. – Acting United States Attorney Alexander C. Van Hook announced that Kyle Robert Dore, 37, of Lake Charles, Louisiana, was sentenced today by United States District Judge James D. Cain, Jr. to 13 months in prison, followed by 1 year of supervised release, for escaping from federal custody.
Evidence introduced at the guilty plea hearing on December 3, 2020 established that Dore had been convicted of a felony offense in the Western District of Louisiana and was committed to the custody of the Bureau of Prisons (BOP) for a total term of 33 months. In September 2019, Dore was transferred to the CINC II Halfway House in Lake Charles to serve out the remainder of his sentence. Dore soon after secured employment and was approved by BOP to begin a period of home confinement. Dore signed an agreement with BOP to remain at his place of residence, except for employment, unless given specific permission to do otherwise. He was scheduled to be released from federal custody on February 28, 2020.
On January 30, 2020, a caseworker with the CINC II Halfway House in Lake Charles conducted an employment check and learned from Dore’s employer that he had not appeared for work that day. Dore had not been given permission to leave federal custody. Law enforcement agents began an investigation into Dore’s whereabouts and learned that he had vacated his residence in Lake Charles and failed to report to work on January 30 and 31. Soon after on February 5, 2020, local law enforcement officers in Oklahoma apprehended Dore in their jurisdiction and he was returned back to Lake Charles and charged with escape from federal custody.
The United States Marshal Service’s Task Force conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Danny Siefker prosecuted the case.
