Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that a Mission, South Dakota, woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Appear.
Tera Jo Larvie, age 28, was indicted on June 8, 2021. She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on July 14, 2021, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.
The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.
The Indictment alleges that on May 18, 2021, Larvie failed to appear for her jury trial for Second Degree Burglary and Larceny.
The charge is merely an accusation and Larvie is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the United States Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.
Larvie was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
