Case Name:   USA v. Hawk Wing et al
  Press Releases:
United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Fort Thompson, South Dakota, man convicted of Possession of a Stolen Firearm was sentenced on July 1, 2019, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Jacob Hawk Wing, age 25, was sentenced to 26 months in federal prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, restitution in the amount of $190, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Hawk Wing was indicted by a federal grand jury on September 11, 2018.  He pled guilty on April 3, 2019.

The conviction stemmed from an incident on July 29, 2018, when law enforcement had heard gun shots and located Hawk Wing and Craig Ross.  Hawk Wing fled the scene, but was later apprehended and ultimately admitted to stealing a rifle that law enforcement had found while searching for Hawk Wing.  Based on his role in the offense, Ross plead guilty to being a felon in possession of a firearm and was sentenced on February 19, 2019, to 26 months in federal prison.   

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), a program bringing together all levels of law enforcement and the communities they serve to reduce violent crime and make our neighborhoods safer for everyone.  The Department of Justice reinvigorated PSN in 2017 as part of the Department’s renewed focus on targeting violent criminals, directing all U.S. Attorney’s Offices to work in partnership with federal, state, local, and tribal law enforcement and the local community to develop effective, locally-based strategies to reduce violent crime.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Crow Creek Agency and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley prosecuted the case.

Hawk Wing was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
