United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Pierre, South Dakota woman convicted of theft from an Indian Tribal Organization was sentenced on October 29, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Ravae Bowman, age 40, was sentenced to three years of probation with six months of home confinement, $5,183.07 in restitution, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

In October 2012, Bowman embezzled money from a Subway store in Eagle Butte where she was the manager. At the time, the Subway store was an entity of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Telephone Authority and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson.
