A Mitchell man pleaded guilty Tuesday to second-degree escape for failing to return to jail after a brief furlough.

Jeremy Moore, 40, entered his plea during regular circuit court at the Davison County Public Safety Center. Moore also pleaded guilty to possession of a controlled substance, methamphetamine.

Moore was arrested on March 6 after law enforcement received a call from the Quality Inn hotel in Mitchell about a suspicious check-in. When officers apprehended Moore, they also found methamphetamine in the hotel room.

Each conviction carries a maximum penalty of five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Judge Chris Giles authorized the Davison County Jail to transport Moore to a doctor's appointment in Parkston while he remains in jail until his sentencing, which is scheduled for April 3.
