WINNER - A Winner woman was sentenced to six months in custody for possessing a firearm as a felon.

The sentence stems from an incident in which Amber Rae Millian, 34, was arrested for spotlighting deer Nov. 18, 2014, on the edge of Winner. Millian was in possession of a .22 caliber rifle and multiple rounds of ammunition at the time of her arrest and had previously been convicted of a felony.

Millian was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 8, 2015, and pled guilty on Jan. 3. Her Monday sentencing includes two years of supervised release following six months in custody, and a $100 assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Also, as part of her sentence, Millian will forfeit ownership of the firearm and ammunition.

The case was investigated by the South Dakota Game, FIsh and Parks department and the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms and Explosives. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jennifer Mammenga and Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case.
