United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Second Degree Burglary was sentenced on August 9, 2017, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Bryan Herman, age 52, was sentenced to 4 months in prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, restitution was ordered in the amount of $11,793.79, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.
Herman was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 18, 2016. He pled guilty on May 15, 2017.
The conviction stemmed from multiple incidents that occurred between June 15, 2016, and July 20, 2016. Around June 15, 2016, Herman broke into the home of a friend in Todd County, South Dakota, and stole multiple blank checks. Between June 20, 2016, and July 20, 2016, Herman forged the account holder’s signature on multiple checks and cashed them at various locations in and around Mission.
This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case.
Herman was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
