On Jan. 3, 2012, while Werkhoven was on supervised release, a member of U.S. Probation Office for the District of North Dakota, along with a law enforcement officer, conducted a supervision search at Werkhoven’s residence.
During the search, eight rounds of 20-gauge Federal brand ammunition were found in Werkhoven’s garage.
U.S. District Judge Ralph R. Erickson sentenced Werkhoven to a total of 51 months in prison followed by three years of supervised release. Werkhoven was ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Crime Victim’s Fund.
