United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Pierre, South Dakota woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Theft of Government Funds.

Brandis Rose Rose, age 37, was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 12, 2013. She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on April 22, 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 an allegation that Rose embezzled, stole, purloined or knowingly converted to her own use Title II funds from the Social Security Administration. The charge is merely an accusation and Rose is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Office of the Investigator General, Social Security Administration. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.

Rose was released on bond pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
