Woman sentenced for driving getaway car in armed robbery

RAPID CITY, S.D.— A woman is serving three years in federal prison for her role as a getaway driver in two robberies in Rapid City in January 2020.

District Court Judge Jeffrey Viken sentenced Tristan Hall, 25, last week on a charge of interference with commerce by robbery. She was sentenced to three years in federal prison, followed by two years of supervised release.

The conviction stems from Hall driving a getaway car for two males while they robbed the Quality Inn and Big D at gunpoint in Rapid City in January 2020.

This case is part of Project Safe Neighborhoods (PSN), the centerpiece of the Department of Justice’s violent crime reduction efforts. PSN is an evidence-based program proven to be effective at reducing violent crime.  Stakeholders work together to identify the most pressing violent crime problems in the community and develop comprehensive solutions to address  them. As part of this strategy, PSN focuses enforcement efforts on the most violent offenders and partners with locally-based prevention and reentry programs for lasting reductions in crime.
