Ehlers Sentenced

A Sioux City man was sentenced in Sioux County District Court for his escape from the Sheldon residential treatment facility.

Twenty-two year-old Scott Ehlers escaped from the facility on July 17th. Ehlers was residing there after being paroled on Plymouth County burglary and failure to appear convictions. Ehlers, who has domestic violence convictions, and Sioux City gang affiliations, was sentenced to five years in prison on a felony escape from custody charge.

The five year prison term will be served after his current burglary and failure to appear prison terms expire.
