Two Mission Woman Sentenced For Burglary

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that two Mission, South Dakota, women convicted of Second Degree Burglary have been sentenced by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange. 

Tara Makes Room For Them and Victoria Brown, both age 19, were sentenced on August 28 and 29, 2013, respectively, to 2 months of imprisonment, 4 months of home confinement, 18 months of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Each was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $3,341.99 to three separate burglary victims.

Both women were indicted by a federal grand jury in February of 2013, and pled guilty on June 13, 2013. 

The conviction stems from incidents that took place on January 16, 2013, when Makes Room For Them, Brown and one other person burglarized three homes on the Rosebud Reservation and took property that did not belong to them.  The remaining co-defendant will be sentenced in September. 

The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  The cases were prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher. 

Makes Room For Them and Brown were immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
