Winner Man Sentenced for Felon in Possession of a Firearm

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Winner, South Dakota, man convicted of Felon in Possession of a Firearm was sentenced on February 8, 2018, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Anthony Martinez, age 37, was sentenced to 1 month in custody, 2 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Martinez was indicted by a federal grand jury on September 12, 2017. He pled guilty on November 15, 2017.

The conviction stemmed from an incident on April 1, 2015, wherein Martinez was outside a residence firing a shotgun. Martinez having previously been convicted of a felony, was in possession of a 12-gauge shotgun at the time of his arrest.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Tripp County Sheriff’s Office, and the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Daniel C. Nelson prosecuted the case.

Martinez is required to self-report to the U.S. Marshals Service on February 22, 2018 at 2:00 pm.
