Redby Man Sentenced For Harboring A Fugitive
MINNEAPOLIS—Yesterday in federal court, a 23-year-old Redby man was sentenced for harboring a fugitive last spring. On May 13, 2013, United States District Court Judge John R. Tunheim sentenced Andrew Oakgrove to 30 months in prison on one count of harboring and concealing a fugitive. Oakgrove was indicted on December 10, 2012, and pleaded guilty on February 6, 2013.
In his plea agreement, Oakgrove admitted that on April 30, 2012, he concealed Jason King from federal authorities. King was wanted on a federal arrest warrant for his indictment in connection to the December 30, 2011, armed robbery of Newby’s Market in Bemidji. Oakgrove also admitted leading police on a high-speed pursuit over several miles. Both men were arrested following the pursuit.
This case was the result of an investigation by the Red Lake Tribal Police Department and the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. It was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey S. Paulsen.
