Sioux County Attorney Thomas Kunstle says that 19-year old Kyle Bottorf had originally pled guilty to six counts of Burglary in the Third Degree, in connection with numerous burglaries in the Hawarden area. Kunstle says each count was a class D felony. Kunstle says Bottorff was given a 10 year suspended prison sentence and required to reside at the Sheldon RTF. Kunstle says that, on August 28th of this year, Bottorf was discovered to have escaped from the RTF.
Kunstle says Bottorff appeared in Sioux County District Court in Orange City Monday, where he received the 10-year sentence for violating the probation that had originally sent him to the Sheldon RTF. He says Bottorff was ordered to report to the Sioux County Jail before being transferred to the Iowa Deparment of Corrections.
