Eagle Butte Man Sentenced For Misprision Of A Felony

Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man convicted of Misprision of a Felony was sentenced on April 27, 2015, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Eugene Condon, age 35, was sentenced to 12 months of probation, a $100 fine, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Condon was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 15, 2014, for Possession and Sale of a Stolen Firearm. On February 3, 2015, Condon pled guilty to a Superseding Information charging him with Misprision of a Felony.

The conviction arose from an incident that occurred on October 4, 2013, at Eagle Butte, when Condon failed to report a serious crime, even though he was present and very aware that a federal crime had been committed.

This case was investigated by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson prosecuted the case.
