United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Third Degree Burglary.

Jake Morrison, age 31, was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 13, 2013. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on February 20, 2013 and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years in custody, a $250,000, or both; 3 years of supervised release; and a $100 special assessment. Restitution may also be ordered.

The charge relates to a January 6, 2013 alleged break-in at a downtown business in Timber Lake. The charge is merely an accusation, and Morrison is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson is prosecuting the case. Morrison was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has not been set.
