Sioux Falls Man Sentenced in Theft by Deception Case
PIERRE, S.D - Attorney General Marty Jackley announced today that Michael Harry Monmaney, 28, Sioux Falls, was sentenced to 8 years with 8 suspended for grand theft by deception and 30 days in jail for the failure to give three day right-to-cancel. In addition to the suspended court sentence, Monmaney was given four year probation period with several conditions including restitution in the amount of $8,887.25 to be paid by the end of the probation period.
Charges stem from complaints filed with the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division for home improvement work that was not completed in Minnehaha County in the late spring 2011 through the summer of 2013.
This case was investigated by the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division and the South Dakota Department of Revenue and prosecuted by the Attorney General’s Office.
