Cherry Creek Woman Found Guilty of Concealing Person from Arrest

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

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Cherry Creek, South Dakota, woman was found guilty of Concealing a Person from Arrest by a federal jury in Pierre, South Dakota, on September 14, 2017.  A Cherry Creek, South Dakota, man was acquitted of the same charge.

September Waloke, age 51, and Everett Condon, age 55, were indicted by a federal grand jury on November 9, 2016.  The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 5 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.   Restitution may also be ordered.  

The charges stemmed from a series of events that occurred between October 19, 2016, and October 20, 2016, at which time Tyson LeCompte, a/k/a Tyson Garreaux, had an active warrant out for his arrest.  The jury found that Waloke harbored and concealed LaCompte during the time period so as to prevent his discovery and arrest.  The jury acquitted Condon of the charges.   

The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney SaraBeth Donovan prosecuted the case.  Waloke was released on conditions pending sentencing, the date of which has not been set.
