Cherry Creek Man Sentenced For Assault

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Cherry Creek, South Dakota, man convicted of Assaulting, Resisting or Impeding a Federal Officer was sentenced on July 8, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Kaleb Earl Hollow Horn, age 24, was sentenced to 12 months and 1 day of custody, followed by 1 year of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Hollow Horn was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 18, 2012, and pled guilty to a Superseding Indictment on April 16, 2013.

The conviction arose from a February 2012 incident in which Hollow Horn assaulted, resisted or impeded a Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe police officer who was arresting him for violating a tribal court order.

The investigation was conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson.
