Pierre Woman Charged with Harboring a Fugitive

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Pierre, South Dakota, woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Concealing Person from Arrest.

Carmen Burgee, age 52, was indicted on December 11, 2018.  She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on December 31, 2018, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 5 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that between September 14, 2016, and October 12, 2018, Burgee harbored and concealed an individual who had a felony arrest warrant issued for his apprehension.

The charge is merely an accusation and Burgee is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.   

Burgee was released on bond pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
