Mission Man Sentenced For Burglary Of Post Office

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Burglary of a Post Office was sentenced on August 28, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Jesse Robinson, age 27, was sentenced to 6 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release to include 6 months of home confinement, $888.96 in restitution, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
         
Robinson was indicted for Burglary of a Post Office and Theft of Mail by a federal grand jury on August 21, 2013.  He pled guilty to Burglary of a Post Office on May 27, 2014.
         
The conviction arose from an incident that occurred in June 2013 when Robinson used a crowbar to pry open a window on the front of the U.S. Post Office in Mission.  Once he was inside, Robinson took four first class COD envelopes addressed to other individuals that contained mail-ordered prescription medication.
             
This case was investigated by the U.S. Post Office and the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.  

Robinson will report to the U.S. Marshals Service on September 2, 2014, to begin serving his sentence.
