United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota man convicted of Larceny was sentenced on June 24, 2013 by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Harvey LaPointe, age 62, was sentenced to 18 months’ probation, $4,900 in restitution, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

LaPointe was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 13, 2013 and pled guilty to the charge on April 8, 2013.

The conviction stems from incidents that took place between August 1, 2009, and December 31, 2010, when LaPointe took money and property from the St. Francis Volunteer Fire Department to which he was not entitled.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers.

LaPointe was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
