United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for breaking into a residence in Eagle Butte in May 2010 and stealing over $1,000 in cash.
Cheyne Michael Thompson, age 20, was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 22, 2011, for Second Degree Burglary and Larceny. He appeared before United States Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on September 12, 2011, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 15 years in custody, a $250,000 fine, or both. Restitution may also be ordered. The charges are merely accusations, and Thompson is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division. Assistant United States Attorney Mikal Hanson is prosecuting the case. Thompson was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal. A trial date has not yet been set.
