Gregory Man Sentenced For Second Degree Burglary

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Gregory, South Dakota, man convicted of Second Degree Burglary was sentenced on April 15, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Roger King, age 46, was sentenced to 37 months of custody, 36 months of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
King was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 12, 2013.  He pled guilty on February 10, 2014.
The conviction stems from an incident occurring on June 9, 2012, when King entered a house uninvited, distracted the owner, and stole a series of blank checks which he later cashed at local businesses.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley prosecuted the case.
King was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
