State Prison Inmate Destiny Wilson Placed on Escape Status

PIERRE, S.D.- A state prison inmate has been placed on escape status after failing to return from her work release jobsite.

Inmate Destiny Wilson, age 28, left the Pierre Community Work Center Dec. 2 to go to her work release job, but failed to return to the work center following her shift.

Wilson is a white female. She is 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighs approximately 140 pounds. She has brown hair and hazel eyes.

Wilson is serving three concurrent four-year, 8 month sentences for possession of a controlled substance from Lawrence, Meade and Pennington Counties and a 1 year, 8 month sentence for grand theft out of Pennington County. Additional information is available on the offender locator on the Department of Corrections website at doc.sd.gov/adult/lookup/.

Anyone who sees Wilson or knows of her whereabouts should contact local law enforcement immediately.

Failing to return to custody following an assignment or temporary leave constitutes second-degree escape, a Class 5 felony, and is punishable by a maximum of five years in prison. South Dakota Codified Law 22-11A-5 states that any person who conceals
any prisoner knowing that the prisoner has escaped is guilty of a Class 5 felony.

There are more than 200 minimum-security inmates statewide assigned to the work release program.
