FARGO, N.D. (AP) - A man who was sent to prison for breaking into a Spirit Lake Indian Reservation post office has been sentenced to more than a year in prison for failing to show up at a halfway house.

Robert Redroad Jr., of St. Michael, is charged with escape from custody. Authorities say Redroad failed to report to the Lake Region Law Enforcement Center in Devils Lake in October after he was released from a federal prison in West Virginia.

Redroad was sentenced in April 2013 to 30 months in prison on charges of burglary of a post office and conspiracy to commit bank fraud. He was sentenced Monday to 13 months in prison on the escape charge with credit for time served.

A federal public defender could not be reached for comment.
