U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Sioux Falls, South Dakota, man convicted of a firearms offense was sentenced on January 25, 2016, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Justin Christopher Moe, age 35, was sentenced to 77 months in custody, followed by 3 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Moe was indicted for Felon in Possession of Firearms by a federal grand jury on July 7, 2015.  He pled guilty on November 10, 2015.

On April 3, 2015, law enforcement came into contact with Moe in Lennox, South Dakota, and located a .45 caliber semi-automatic pistol in his vehicle.  A search warrant was executed on Moe’s residence in Sioux Falls and a 12-gauge shotgun was found.  Moe has previously been convicted of five felonies and is prohibited from possessing firearms.

This case was investigated by the Sioux Falls Police Department and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer D. Mammenga prosecuted the case.

Moe was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
