Walthill Man Sentenced for Burglary

October 28, 2013

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that William G. Hallowell, 28 of Walthill, Nebraska was sentenced in federal court in Omaha for a burglary on the Omaha Indian Reservation.  The Honorable John H. Gerrard sentenced Hallowell to a 21 month term of imprisonment concurrent with his Omaha Tribal Court sentence for the same offense.  After his release from prison Hallowell will begin a three year term of supervised release. 

On July 7, 2012, the Walthill Police Department responded to a burglary.  The residents returned to their home to find their dog shut in a bathroom and a computer and jewelry missing.  Hallowell was arrested later that day after being in an altercation with another individual.  The computer and bag of jewelry were in his possession at the time of his arrest.

This case was investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation and Walthill Police Department.
