United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man convicted of Third Degree Burglary was sentenced on July 24, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange. 

Jake Morrison, age 31, was sentenced to 18 months of imprisonment, two years of supervised release, a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund, and $972.61 in restitution.
Morrison was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 13, 2013, and pled guilty to the indictment on April 30, 2013. 

The charge stems from an incident occurring on January 6, 2013, when Morrison, with the help of two other co-defendants, broke into the Chatter Box Corner Café in Timber Lake and stole several bottles of alcohol.

The investigation was conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson prosecuted the case. 

Morrison was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
