Winner Woman Sentenced for Felon in Possession of a Firearm

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

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Winner, South Dakota, woman convicted of Felon in Possession of a Firearm was sentenced on April 10, 2017, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Amber Rae Millian, age 34, was sentenced to 6 months in custody, followed by 2 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Millian was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 8, 2015. She pled guilty on January 3, 2017.

The conviction stems from an incident that occurred on November 18, 2014, wherein Millian was arrested for spotlighting deer on the edge of Winner. Millian, having previously been convicted of a felony, was in possession of a .22 caliber rifle and multiple rounds of .22 caliber ammunition at the time of her arrest. As part of her sentence, Millian will forfeit ownership of the firearm and ammunition.

This case was investigated by the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks, and the Federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jennifer Mammenga and Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case.
