The sentencings took place on June 12 and 15, 2023, in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.
Antyon Hamilton Hogan, age 25, was sentenced to 11 years and eight months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release.

Four co-defendants were previously sentenced in this case:
- Marvin Antuan Williams, age 32, was sentenced to nine years in federal prison;
- Keyvon Hamilton Hogan, age 22, was sentenced to two years in federal prison;
- Emilio Herrera, age 22, was sentenced to two years of probation; and
- Giovanni Hamilton Hogan, age 23, was sentenced to two years of probation.
In announcing these sentences U.S. Attorney Ramsdell stated, “This office will continue to pursue justice on behalf of the multiple individuals and financial institutions adversely impacted by these crimes. The sentences handed down in this case demonstrate the serious nature of these crimes and are a reflection of the hard work and cooperation of our state and federal law enforcement partners.”
“The sentencings and judgments imposed today against Mr. Hogan and his co-conspirators demonstrate that individuals who engage in these types of financial crime will be held accountable,” said Jamie Holt, Homeland Security Investigations St. Paul Special Agent in Charge. “The hours spent by agents to ensure a successful prosecution is a testament that HSI and our law enforcement partners are closely investigating criminal schemes for illicit financial gain.”
“Mr. Hogan and his co-conspirators engaged in a variety of financial crimes that included stealing checks from mailboxes and bank accounts,” said IRS Criminal Investigation Special Agent in Charge Thomas F. Murdock, St. Louis Field Office. “The diligent pursuit of this group of thieves by IRS-CI and our law enforcement partners disrupted the scheme and brought them to justice.”
All six co-defendants were indicted for Conspiracy to Commit Bank Fraud and Conspiracy to Launder Monetary Instruments by a federal grand jury in April of 2022. According to court documents, from 2020 to April of 2022, Antyon Hamilton Hogan, Hardiman, their four co-defendants, conspired with others to commit bank fraud. The scheme impacted multiple financial institutions throughout the Sioux Falls area and elsewhere, as the defendants obtained money from those banks by means of false or fraudulent pretenses, representations, and promises.
After obtaining funds through fraud, the co-conspirators engaged in depositing, transferring, wiring, and withdrawing currency and funds at financial institutions to conceal and disguise the proceeds of the fraud scheme.
This case was investigated by the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation; Department of Homeland Security, Homeland Security Investigations; U.S. Customs and Border Protection; Sioux Falls Police Department; U.S. Postal Service; and South Dakota Highway Patrol. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeremy R. Jehangiri prosecuted the case.
Antyon Hamilton Hogan and Hardiman were remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to continue serving their respective terms of imprisonment.
