A South Dakota man has been sentenced to more than five years in prison on a charge of kidnapping and aiding and abetting.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson announced Wednesday that 26-year-old Jerett Jakeway was sentenced to five years and two months in prison, to be followed by three years of supervised release. Jakeway earlier pleaded guilty to the charge.
Prosecutors say Jakeway and his father traveled from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to the Rosebud Indian Reservation to locate a man they thought had stolen a piece of property from a family member. The two men reportedly kidnapped the man at gunpoint and assaulted him.
