An Iowa City man who failed to return to a halfway house in 2017 has been sentenced to 18 months in prison.

Judge Linda Reade handed down the sentence to 41-year-old Gabriel Mangum on Monday. There is no parole in the federal prison system. He’ll also have to pay a $100 fine and serve three years of supervised release following his prison term.

Mangum had been serving time on a previous charge at the Hinzman Center in Cedar Rapids when he went to work on June 20, 2017. But police say he did not return to the Hinzman Center that day. He was found less than a month later by U.S. Marshals.

Mangum admitted to intentionally failing to return to the center and pleaded guilty to Escape From Custody last August. He’s currently being held by the Marshal Service until he can be transported to a federal prison.

Mangum has been in-and-out of prison for more than 20 years, serving time for weapons and robbery charges, among others.
