Parmelee Man Sentenced for Third Degree Burglary
Assistant United States Attorney
United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Parmelee, South Dakota, man charged with Third Degree Burglary and Aiding and Abetting was sentenced on November 6, 2012, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Jonathan Michael White Lance, age 19, was sentenced to 8 months in custody, 1 year of supervised release, $2,661.58 in restitution, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.
White Lance was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 8, 2012, and pled guilty to the charge on August 14, 2012.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place on February 27, 2012, when White Lance and others broke into the Kary’s Store in Parmelee by using a crow bar to break the lock off the doorway. White Lance aided and abetted the burglary, which included entering the store, looking through merchandise, U.S. currency, and property and taking items from the store.
The investigation was conducted by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Tim Maher.
White Lance was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal.
