Eagle Butte Man Sentenced For Larceny

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man convicted of Larceny was sentenced on March 10, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Torin DeWitt, age 25, was sentenced to 10 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, $3,310.07 in restitution, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

DeWitt was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 14, 2013.  He pled guilty on December 18, 2013.

The conviction stems from an incident occurring on October 23, 2013, wherein DeWitt stole a 2007 gray Jeep Laredo from someone’s driveway.

This case was investigated by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Police Department.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.

DeWitt was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
