Eagle Butte Man Sentenced for Felon in Possession of a Firearm

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man convicted of Felon in Possession of a Firearm was sentenced on July 9, 2018, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

D’Boy Condon, age 40, was sentenced to 6 months in federal prison, followed by 4 months of home confinement, 2 years of supervised release, forfeiture of a Western Field, model M732, .30-06 caliber rifle, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Condon was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 17, 2017.  He pled guilty on March 22, 2018.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred on March 31, 2016, in Eagle Butte.  On that day, Condon was found with the .30-06 caliber rifle wrapped inside a blanket on the couch where he was sitting.  It was reported that the rifle was received by Condon as payment, and earlier in the evening, Condon was pointing the rifle at another person. 

Condon was convicted of Assaulting a Federal Officer in 2001, making it illegal for him to possess firearms.  Condon will forfeit ownership of the rifle to the United States.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.   Attorney General Jeff Sessions reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.

This case was investigated by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges prosecuted the case.

Condon was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
