Rosebud Man Charged And Sentenced For Assault By Striking, Beating, And Wounding And Simple Assault

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of assault charges has pled guilty and was sentenced on July 12, 2013, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno. 

Kenneth Black Wolf, age 24, was sentenced to 12 months’ probation for Assault by Striking, Beating and Wounding, and 6 months’ probation for Simple Assault.  He was also ordered to pay $20 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on January 28, 2013, when Black Wolf struck and bit the victim’s nose during an altercation.

The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers.  Black Wolf was released.
