Lake Charles, La. (KLFY)  A Lake Charles man in federal prison custody pleaded guilty last week to federal escape charges after failing to report to a halfway house according to terms of home confinement.

37 year old Shaun Daigle pleaded guilty Friday before U.S. Magistrate Judge Kathleen Kay to one count of escape from extended custody.

According to the guilty plea, Daigle was serving a period of home confinement in Lake Charles after being released by the Forrest City Federal Correction Institution in Arkansas.

As part of the terms of his home confinement, he was required to report to the halfway house any time they requested. He was also required to remain in home confinement as ordered by the Bureau of Prisons.

Authorities say on May 7, 2016, Daigle was ordered to return to the CINC II Halfway House in Lake Charles and did not show up.

He was found on May 8, 2016 in Westlake, La., and was arrested.

Daigle faces up to five years in prison, three years of supervised release and a $250,000 fine.

A sentencing date of November 10, 2016 was set.
