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 Rosebud, South Dakota man convicted of Third Degree Burglary and Aiding and Abetting was sentenced on June 24, 2013 by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Justin Lee Gabriel, age 21, was sentenced to 21 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, $2,600 in restitution, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Gabriel was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 11, 2012 and pled guilty to the charge on February 6, 2013.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place on September 6, 2012, when Gabriel broke in to the Prairie Hills Square golf course and took U.S. currency from the business.
The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher.
Gabriel was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals.
