For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Idaho

COEUR D'ALENE - Isiah James Harrington, 19, of Spokane, was sentenced in the U.S. District Court in Coeur d’Alene to 41 months in prison for attempted robbery, U.S. Attorney Bart M. Davis announced today. Chief U.S. District Judge David C. Nye also ordered Harrington to serve three years of supervised release following his prison sentence. Harrington pleaded guilty to the charge on September 4, 2019.

According to court records, on January 8, 2019, Harrington followed a man from Spokane Valley, Washington, to the Coeur d’Alene Indian Reservation, in Idaho, to rob him. When the man exited his car, Harrington approached, pointed a firearm, and demanded money. Before he could take the man’s money, Harrington fled when he saw people coming to help from a nearby residence.

This case was prosecuted in federal court because the crime occurred within the boundaries of the Coeur d’Alene Indian Reservation.

This case was investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation, Coeur d’Alene Tribal Police Department, and Plummer Police Department.
