Mission Man Sentenced for Burglary

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Third Degree Burglary was sentenced on March 26, 2019, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Preston White Feather, age 23, was sentenced to 14 months in federal prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

White Feather was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 12, 2018.  He pled guilty on January 23, 2019.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred in the early morning hours of April 9, 2018, wherein White Feather broke into and burglarized the Todd County High School in Mission, and stole property belonging to the school, valued at over $4,000.

This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case.

White Feather was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
