SIOUX FALLS - United States Attorney Alison J. Ramsdell announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Larceny.

Dustin Gallegos, Jr., age 25, was indicted in May of 2022. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Daneta Wollmann on September 27, 2022, and pleaded not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to five years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, three years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that on March 7, 2022, in Todd County, South Dakota, Gallegos stole personal property with a value of more than $1,000.

The charge is merely an accusation and Gallegos is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson is prosecuting the case.   

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