Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a White River, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Third Degree Burglary and Larceny.
Kurt Bartlett, age 27, was indicted on February 8, 2021. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on August 25, 2021, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.
The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to five years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, three years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.
The Indictment alleges that on July 9, 2021, in Mission, Bartlett unlawfully entered the Todd County School District Bus Shop and stole property valued over $1,000.
The charges are merely accusations and Bartlett is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson is prosecuting the case.
Bartlett was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
