Burglary and Firearm Theft Leads to Prison Sentences for Three Members of Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin
Matthew D. Krueger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that three members of the Menominee Indian Tribe of Wisconsin received sentences for their roles in the theft of a firearm from a residence on the Menominee Indian Reservation. The sentences, imposed by Senior United States District Judge William C. Griesbach, were the result of guilty pleas to the following charges:
|Defendant||Charge of Conviction||Sentencing date||Months of Prison||Months of Supervised Release|
|Brett L. O’Kimosh (age: 42), of Keshena, WI||Possession of a Firearm by a Felon||02/13/2020||36||36|
|Anthony Boyd (age: 23), formerly of Green Bay, WI||Aiding or Abetting a Burglary||08/26/2019||18||36|
|Mary Ann Dodge (age: 33), of Shawano, WI||Aiding or Abetting a Burglary||08/26/2019||18||36|
According to court filings, the defendants agreed to burglarize the Keshena residence of a relative. The three then drove to the residence. Once there, Boyd assisted O’Kimosh, who stole a rifle from inside the house. A resident inside the home chased the three away before they could steal more property, and Dodge drove the other two away. The three traveled to a home in Neopit, where they traded the rifle for drugs.
When imposing sentence, Judge Griesbach noted the serious nature of the conduct, the abuse of trust involved in taking advantage of a family member, and the need to deter others who would consider similar conduct.
