Sioux City man with 20 year criminal history gets another 17 years in prison


A Sioux City man will spend more than 17 years in federal prison for illegally possessing a gun during a burglary.

Last January, Scott Slauter, 38, was videotaped burglarizing a home in Sioux City. He brandished a handgun while committing the crime.

He took jewelry and a pistol from the home.

In August, Slauter pled guilty to charges of possessing a stolen gun, and being a felon in possession of a firearm.

Back in 1992 when Slauter was 18, he was convicted of shooting a South Sioux City, Nebraska convenience store clerk in the face during a hold-up where guns were stolen.

Two months later, he and another inmate escaped from the Dixon County jail. They were caught after stealing a sheriff's squad car.

In 1996 Slaughter was charged with burglarizing SmithCo Manufacturing in Le Mars, Iowa.
