Michael “Little Feather” Giron


Little Feather has accepted a non-cooperating plea agreement. On May 30, 2018, he was sentenced to a 36 month prison term.

In accordance with the terms of the agreement, the Use of Fire to Commit a Federal Felony Offense charge was dismissed and the judge accepted the joint recommendation of 36 months on the Civil Disorder charge.

Little Feather has been incarcerated since March 9, 2017 and will receive credit for the time he has already served.  On May 21, 2018, he was moved from Rugby ND to Burleigh/Morton County Detention Center in Bismarck where he will remain until he is moved to the BOP facility where he will serve his sentence. We do not yet know where or when he will be moved.
