ONIDA, S.D. – (DRG News) A Pierre woman pleaded guilty last week in a Sully County Courtroom to Aiding and Abetting Third Degree Burglary. 20-year-old Kyla Fischer was one of three people charged with a break-in at Agar which occurred in May of 2011. Sully County States Attorney Emily Sovell says that Fischer admitted to Aiding and Abetting Burglary and charges of Grand Theft and Intentional Damage to Property were dismissed. Fischer faces a maximum penalty of ten years and a $20,000 fine when she is sentenced on January 22 in Onida.
Two others have already been sentenced for the crime, in which a burglary was committed at an Agar business. A safe, containing several items including an antique coin collection, was stolen. The coins were removed from the safe and the safe was thrown into the river. Officials have said it was later recovered. The coins were valued at as much as $100,000. 22-year-old Christopher Paul was sentenced in July for his guilty plea to Grand Theft. He received five years in prison with three years suspended. Another man, 20-year-old Tyson Burgard, also pled guilty to Grand Theft and was sentenced last month to seven years in prison, with four years suspended.
