Feds to supervise Ft. Thompson woman after she stole dead ex's car

A Fort Thompson woman will be on supervised release after being convicted of larceny.

Ruby Sazue, 20, was sentenced Monday by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Sazue was sentenced to time served (105 days), 18 months of supervised release, $7,300 in restitution, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Sazue was indicted by a federal grand jury Nov. 14. She pleaded guilty Jan. 13.

The conviction stems from an incident occurring on the evening of Oct. 30 when Sazue learned of the death of her former significant other. She began to drink alcohol and became upset at the news. Sazue stole the motor vehicle belonging to the victim in an effort to try and drive to Pierre. After stealing the vehicle, Sazue wrecked the vehicle near the power plant outside of Fort Thompson.
