United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte man charged with Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury was sentenced on January 5, 2011, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Michael A. Hollow Horn, age 33, was sentenced to 41 months in custody, 3 years of supervised release, restitution, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

Hollow Horn was indicted for two counts of Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury by a federal grand jury on June 9, 2010. The charges arise from a November 2009 car crash on Main Street in Eagle Butte in which a woman and her child were seriously injured. Hollow Horn pled guilty to one count of Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury on October 12, 2010.

This case was investigated by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division. Assistant United States Attorney Mikal Hanson prosecuted the case.

Hollow Horn was ordered to self-report to the United States Bureau of Prisons on January 12, 2011, to begin serving his sentence.
