California Man Sentenced for Larceny

2 mins read

Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Los Angeles, California, man convicted of Larceny was sentenced on December 13, 2021, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

Julio Salvador Guevara, age 36, was sentenced to eight months in federal prison, followed by two years of supervised release, a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100, and restitution in the amount of $825.32.

Guevara was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 17, 2018.  He pled guilty on September 20, 2021.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred on January 19, 2018, in Eagle Butte, South Dakota.  Guevara stole a pickup truck and fled from several law enforcement officers on the Cheyenne River Sioux Indian Reservation.  Guevara was arrested after he stopped the pickup instead of driving over tire spikes placed on the road.      

This case was investigated by Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services, the Ziebach County Sheriff’s Office, the Haakon County Sheriff’s Office, and the South Dakota Highway Patrol.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron J. Cook prosecuted the case.

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