Tahlequah Woman Pleads Guilty To False Statement

MUSKOGEE, OKLAHOMA – The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Julieann Logsdon, age 33, of Tahlequah, Oklahoma, entered a guilty plea to False Statement, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 1001, punishable by not more than 5 years imprisonment, up to a $250,000.00 fine, or both.

The Indictment alleges that on or about August 29, 2017, within the Eastern District of Oklahoma, the defendant did willfully and knowingly make a materially false, fictitious, and fraudulent statement and representation in a matter within the jurisdiction of the executive branch of the government of the United States, by claiming she entered the MailMart and turned off the alarm, at a specific date and time.  The statement and representation were false because, as the defendant then and there knew, she did not enter the MailMart and did not turn off the alarm at that time. 

The charges arose from an investigation by the Tahlequah Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.

The Honorable Kimberly E. West, U.S. Magistrate Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, in Muskogee, accepted the plea and ordered the completion of a presentence investigation report.
