Eagle Butte Man Sentenced for Possession of a Stolen Firearm

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man convicted of Possession of a Stolen Firearm was sentenced on February 2, 2015, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Shilo Hill, a/k/a Shilo Robideau, age 19, was sentenced to 2 months in custody, 18 months of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Hill was indicted for Second Degree Burglary, Larceny, and Possession of a Stolen Firearm by a federal grand jury on July 15, 2014. He pled guilty to Possession of a Stolen Firearm on November 17, 2014.

The conviction arose from an incident in March 2014, when Hill knowingly and unlawfully received, possessed, concealed, and stored a .45 caliber Glock pistol, which he had stolen. The firearm was manufactured outside of South Dakota and was shipped and transported in interstate commerce before Hill took and possessed the firearm.

This case was investigated by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson prosecuted the case. Hill was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to begin serving his sentence.
