Illinois Man Sentenced to Federal Prison for Passing Counterfeit United States Currency and Attempted Passing Counterfeit United States Currency
United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota, woman convicted of Second Degree Burglary was sentenced on August 29, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Victoria Brown, age 19, was sentenced to 2 months of imprisonment, 4 months of home confinement, 18 months of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. She was also ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $3,341.99 to 3 separate burglary victims.
Brown was indicted by a federal grand jury in February of 2013. She pled guilty to Count I of the Indictment on June 13, 2013.
The conviction stems from incidents that took place on January 16, 2013, when Brown and two others burglarized three homes on the Rosebud Reservation and took property that did not belong to them. Two other co-defendants have also been convicted and sentenced on burglary charges.
The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher.
Brown was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
