Rosebud Man Indicted For Assault With A Dangerous Weapon

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assault with a Dangerous Weapon.

Jason Riley, age 35, was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 8, 2011. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on April 24, 2013 and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years’ in custody, 3 years’ of supervised release; and a $100 Special Assessment. Restitution may also be ordered.

The charge is merely an accusation and Riley is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

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

Riley was released to a third party custodian pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
