A Pierre woman is serving two months in custody for lying to a federal officer during an investigation into an armed standoff last year.
Twenty-year-old Kelsey Howe pleaded guilty in February to one count of making false statements to a federal agency. She was sentenced last week to two months in custody and a year on supervised release.
Authorities say Howe lied about knowing the whereabouts of Jason Garreau, who was involved in a shootout near Fort Thompson in October with law officers. Garreau's cousin was killed in the shootout.
Garreau later was involved in a shootout in Pierre that wounded two police officers. He's pleaded guilty to both state and federal charges and is to be sentenced in a few weeks.
