Mission Woman Sentenced For Assault And Aiding And Abetting

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota woman convicted of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and Aiding and Abetting was sentenced on April 9, 2013 by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Misty Fawn Swalley, age 22, was sentenced to 15 months in custody, 18 months of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

Swalley was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 18, 2012 and pled guilty to the charge on January 9, 2013.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on October 1, 2011, when Swalley and others assaulted and beat the victim, which ended when Swalley stabbed the victim with a broken bottle.

The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy M. Maher.

Swalley was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
