PIERRE-A high-risk inmate finishing a three-year sentence will be released from prison Tuesday.

The South Dakota Department of Corrections announced Friday afternoon that 28-year-old Cory Yellow Boy will have completed his sentence for second-degree escape from Pennington County. Yellow Boy, who has indicated plans to live in Rapid City following his release, will not be on parole or other supervision.

Corrections Secretary Denny Kaemingk said that he decided to alert the public of Yellow Boy's impending release due to Yellow Boy's "extensive history of sexual offenses as well as institutional assessments that indicate a high risk for committing future sexual offenses."

This is the 10th public notice of a high-risk or high-profile inmates release since 2011.
