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

Susan Dillabaugh, age 33, was indicted on January 15, 2014.  She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge William D. Gerdes on January 23, 2014, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 5 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that on or about between September 23, 2011, and January 9, 2012, Dillabaugh unlawfully took and carried away with intent to steal and purloin the personal property of another, namely Pretty Bird Woman House. The property had a value in excess of $1,000.

The charge is merely an accusation and Dillabaugh is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the Department of Justice Office of the Inspector General and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley is prosecuting the case.  
Dillabaugh was released on bond pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
