Work Center Inmate Placed On Escape Status

An inmate from the Pierre Community Work Center has been placed on escape status by the South Dakota Department of Corrections. Inmate Destiny Wilson left the Work Center Saturday to go to a work release job but did not return after her shift. White is described by D-O-C officials as a five-foot, five-inch tall, 28 year-old white female with brown hair and hazel eyes. She weights approximately 140 pounds. Wilson is serving three concurrent four-year, eight month sentences for possession of a controlled substance from Lawrence, Meade and Pennington Counties. Wilson is also serving a year and eight month sentence out of Pennington County for grand theft. Anyone who sees Wilson or knows of her whereabouts is asked to contact local law enforcement immediately. Failing to return from a work release opportunity is considered second degree escape, which is a Class Five felony that carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison. Anyone who harbors an escapee is also guilty of a Class Five felony. Wilson would be eligible for parole in April of next year. She is tentatively scheduled to complete her time in February of 2021.
