Mission Woman Guilty Of Second Degree Burglary

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Victoria Brown, age 19, of Mission, South Dakota, appeared before U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange on May 1, 2013, and pled guilty to Second Degree Burglary.  The maximum penalty upon conviction is 15 years in custody, a $250,000 fine, or both; 3 years of supervised release; and a $100 assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on January 16, 2013, when Brown and others burglarized homes on the Rosebud Reservation and took property that did not belong to them.

The investigation was conducted by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy M. Maher.

A presentence investigation was ordered, and a sentencing date was set for July 24, 2013.  The defendant was released from custody until July 19, 2013, when she must self-report to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
