Sallisaw man sentenced

MUSKOGEE– The United States Attorney’s Office for the Eastern District of Oklahoma announced that Troy Allen Stevenson, age 23, of Sallisaw was sentenced to 48 months in prison for Involuntary Manslaughter in Indian Country.

The charges arose from investigations by the Sequoyah County Sheriff’s Office, the Cherokee Nation Marshal Service, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. 

On Oct. 13, 2022, Stevenson was found guilty by a federal jury at trial.  On July 17, 2021, after being assaulted by his estranged father, Stevenson responded with excessive force, shooting and killing him. 

The crimes occurred in Sequoyah County, within the boundaries of the Cherokee Nation Reservation, in the Eastern District of Oklahoma.

Ronald A. White, Chief Judge in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, presided over the hearing in Muskogee.  Stevenson will remain in the custody of the U.S. Marshal pending transportation to a designated United States Bureau of Prisons facility to serve a non-paroleable sentence of incarceration. 

Assistant United States Attorneys Kevin Gross and Derick Blakely represented the United States.
