Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Red Scaffold, South Dakota, man convicted of Second Degree Burglary was sentenced on September 20, 2021, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

William Collins, age 43, was sentenced to 36 months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Collins was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 16, 2019.  He pled guilty on May 27, 2021.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred on March 23, 2019, in Red Scaffold.  On that date, Collins unlawfully entered a residence with the intent to assault a woman therein. 

This case was investigated by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron J. Cook prosecuted the case.

Collins was immediately remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
