Sisseton Man Sentenced to 180 Months in Federal Prison for Robbery and Aiding and Abetting

Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Sisseton, South Dakota, man convicted of Robbery and Aiding and Abetting was sentenced on October 4, 2021 by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann.

Brendon Javon Jacob Rodlund, age 29, was sentenced to 180 months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release.  He was also ordered to pay $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Rodlund was indicted for assault with intent to commit murder, maiming, robbery, assault with a dangerous weapon, assault resulting in serious bodily injury, and aiding and abetting by a federal grand jury on November 10, 2020.  He pled guilty on May 11, 2021.

During the night between November 16 and 17, 2015, Rodlund, along with three co-conspirators, while aiding and abetting each other, assaulted a victim in an effort to rob the victim of property and things of value.  The robbery and assault took place at Dry Wood Lake near Sisseton, South Dakota.

Rodlund is also serving a separate federal sentence of approximately 13 years for sexual assault.  His robbery sentence will be served consecutively to his prior sentence for sexual assault. 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeremy R. Jehangiri prosecuted the case.

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