Justice Department Secures Agreement with South Dakota Hotel and Sports Lounge to Resolve Allegations of Discrimination Against Native Americans
United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Lakewood, Colorado, man convicted of Subornation of Perjury and Conspiracy to Commit Subornation of Perjury was sentenced on January 21, 2022, by Judge Karen E. Schreier, U.S. District Court.
Jason Patrick Baca, age 35, was sentenced to five years in federal prison on each count, to run consecutively, followed by three years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay a $200 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Baca was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 21, 2019, and pleaded guilty on December 22, 2021. The conviction stems from Baca threatening a material witness and dissuading the witness from testifying truthfully in the September 2021 jury trial for the 2016 assault and shooting death of Vincent Von Brewer III.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Sarah Collins and Benjamin Patterson prosecuted the case.
Baca was immediately remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
