U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Ft. Thompson man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury.

Jameson Ziegler, age 27, was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 12, 2011. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on July 21, 2011, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years' imprisonment. The charge stems from the alleged assault on a Ft. Thompson woman in May 2011. The charge is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Crow Creek Agency. Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges is prosecuting the case. Ziegler was released on bond pending trial. A trial date has not yet been set.
