Three People Indicted for Burglary and Firearm Offenses on Menominee Indian Reservation

Matthew D. Krueger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on March 5, 2019, a federal grand jury returned a two-count superseding indictment against two men and a woman allegedly involved in a burglary and unlawful possession of a firearm on the Menominee Indian Reservation. The indictment named:

Name

Age

Residence

Brett L. O’Kimosh, Jr.

41

Shawano, WI

Mary Ann Dodge

32

Taycheedah, WI

Anthony J. Boyd

22

Waupun, WI

Count One of the indictment charged all three defendants with Burglary in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 1153 and 2, and Wisconsin Statutes § 943.10. O’Kimosh and Boyd are also charged in Count Two with Unlawful Possession of a Firearm, in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 922(g). If convicted of Count One, each defendant faces a maximum of 90 months in prison, up to a $25,000 fine, and up to 66 months of supervised release. If convicted of Count Two, each defendant faces a maximum of 10 years’ imprisonment, up to a $250,000 fine, and up to 3 years of supervised release.

According to the indictment, on or about May 16, 2018, the defendants entered a building or dwelling in Keshena, which is on the Menominee Indian Reservation, without consent from the homeowner and with the intent to steal. The same day, O’Kimosh and Boyd allegedly possessed a .22 rifle. O’Kimosh and Boyd were prohibited from possession of firearms at the time of the incident.

The Menominee Tribal Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the case. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Andrew J. Maier.

An indictment is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
