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

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Larceny.

Tommy Shaving, age 49, was indicted on July 10, 2018.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on July 19, 2018, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 5 years in federal prison 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 Indictment alleges that between October 12, 2017, and October 28, 2017, Shaving unlawfully took and carried away proceeds from checks written on two individuals’ checking accounts, valued at more than $1,000.

The charge is merely an accusation and Shaving is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.   

Shaving was released on bond pending trial.  A trial date has been set for September 18, 2018.
