Howes Man Sentenced for Larceny

Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Howes, South Dakota, man convicted of Larceny was sentenced on June 24, 2015, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Leland Logg, age 38, was sentenced to 4 years of probation, $7,583.15 in restitution, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Logg was indicted by a federal grand jury on January 14, 2015, for Larceny. He pled guilty to the Indictment on March 23, 2015.

The conviction arose when Logg, as treasurer of the Dakota Oyate Challenge Basketball Tournament Board, stole $7,583.00 from the Board by writing checks to himself, his girlfriend, and various businesses, from the Dakota Oyate bank account with Wells Fargo Bank. Logg used this money for his own personal use and to pay his personal bills in and around Eagle Butte and Dewey County.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.
