Eagle Butte Man Sentenced For Possession Of A Stolen Firearm

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota man who was convicted of Possession of a Stolen Firearm was sentenced on April 15, 2013 by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Judson His Law, a/k/a Judson Two Dogs, age 18, was sentenced to 15 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

His Law was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 15, 2012 and pled guilty to Count I of the Indictment—Possession of a Stolen Firearm—on January 23, 2013.

The investigation was conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Mikal Hanson and Kathryn Rich.

His Law was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal to begin serving his sentence.
