Mission Man Sentenced for Third-Degree Burglary, Aiding and Abetting

Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Third Degree Burglary and Aiding and Abetting was sentenced on July 27, 2015, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Preston White Feather, age 19, was sentenced to 11 months in custody with credit for time served, 4 months in a Residential Re-Entry Center, two years of supervised release, a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund, and $8,638.31 restitution joint and several.

White Feather was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 13, 2014. He pled guilty on March 26, 2015.

On or about August 20, 2014, White Feather, co-defendant Nicola Black Lance, and two juveniles, broke into the Todd County government building in Mission and stole property, including firearms held in the Todd County Sheriff’s office, as well as some marijuana and cocaine. The group caused property damage to the building. Some of the co-defendants came up with the idea, some took part in the burglary, and all aided and abetted the burglary.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher prosecuted the case.

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