United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota man convicted of Interstate Transportation of a Stolen Motor Vehicle was sentenced on June 24, 2013 by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Alec Arapahoe, age 20, was sentenced to 9 months in custody, 18 months of supervised release, $6,419.48 in restitution, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Arapahoe was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 22, 2011 and pled guilty to the charge on April 2, 2013.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on July 3, 2011, when Arapahoe stole a pickup truck from Colorado and drove the vehicle from Colorado to South Dakota and onto the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation.

The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher.

Arapahoe was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals.
