WILLISTON (AP) - Bond has been set at $50,000 for a North Dakota inmate who escaped from custody and was recaptured in Montana.
Preston Sonstegaard, of Williston, faces a felony escape charge that carries a maximum sentence of five years in prison upon conviction. Court documents do not list an attorney for him.
Williams County authorities say Sonstegaard was being held for violating probation when he escaped custody on Oct. 1 while being treated at a Williston hospital. He was captured in Glendive, Mont., a week later.
