Mission Woman Sentenced for Misprision of a Felon

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Mission, South Dakota, woman convicted of Misprision of a Felon was sentenced on May 13, 2019, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Sharlie Colombe, a/k/a Sharli Colombe, age 35, was sentenced to 3 years’ probation, ordered to pay restitution in the amount of $10,000, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Colombe was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 14, 2018, which was followed by a Superseding Information on February 19, 2019.  She pled guilty to the Superseding Information on February 19, 2019.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred between February 4, 2011, through June 6, 2017, where Co-Defendant Mark O’Leary passed at least 544 checks drawn on a bank account belonging to the victim. The checks were used for personal items for O’Leary and the purchases were not authorized by the owner of the bank account. Colombe knew of O’Leary’s activities, helping him to cash some of the checks and did not report it to law enforcement.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges prosecuted the case.
