U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assault With a Dangerous Weapon and Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury.
Clayton High Pipe, Jr., age 22, was indicted by a federal grand jury in December 2010. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on November 8, 2011, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years' imprisonment on each count. The charges are merely accusations, and High Pipe is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges is prosecuting the case. High Pipe was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has not yet been set.
