Gregory Man Charged With Second Degree Burglary And Forgery

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Gregory, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury.
Roger B. King, age 45, was indicted on April 12, 2013, for Second Degree Burglary and Forgery.  King appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on November 13, 2013, and pled not guilty to the Indictment. 
The maximum penalty upon conviction is 15 years of imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, an additional 2 years of supervised release upon revocation, and a mandatory $100 special assessment on each count to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered. 
The charges are merely accusations, and King is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley is prosecuting the case.   

King was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.  A trial date has not been set.
