United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a White Earth, Minnesota, man convicted of burglary was sentenced on August 2, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.
Raymond Jackson, age 33, was sentenced to 15 months in custody with credit for time served, 2 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Jackson was indicted by a federal grand jury on January 13, 2013, and pled guilty to the charge on May 13, 2013.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place August 15, 2012, when Jackson entered and remained in a residence in Marty, South Dakota, with the intent to commit a crime. Jackson made entry into the residence by walking through an unlocked door, where he surprised the sleeping resident inside the home. The resident woke up, struggled briefly with Jackson, and Jackson ran out of the home. He was arrested a short time later.
The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Law Enforcement Services, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Thomas J. Wright.
Jackson will self-surrender to the custody of the U.S. Marshal later this month.
