HUALAPAI NATION TRIBAL MEMBER SENTENCED TO FEDERAL PRISON FOR ROBBERY

PHOENIX – On Aug. 26, 2013, Lance Buddy Jackson, 27, of Peach Springs, Ariz., and an enrolled member of the Hualapai Nation Indian Tribe, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Stephen M. McNamee to 42 months in federal prison, followed by a term of three years of supervised release.  Jackson pleaded guilty on June 4, 2013 to robbery.

According to court documents, on Oct. 8, 2012, Jackson entered the Hualapai Lodge after midnight wearing dark clothing and a ski mask.  Jackson approached the victim, an employee of the Lodge, pulled out what appeared to be a black handgun, but was later determined to be a BB gun, and demanded money from the victim. Jackson was subsequently apprehended based on video surveillance of the robbery. 

The investigation in this case was conducted by the Hualapai Nation Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  The prosecution was handled by Christina J. Reid-Moore, Assistant U.S. Attorney, District of Arizona, Phoenix.
