U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Lower Brule woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assault With a Dangerous Weapon and Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury.
Keesha Ewing, age 29, was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 20, 2012. She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on March 28, 2012, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years' imprisonment on each count, a $250,000 fine, or both. The charges are merely accusations, and Ewing is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges is prosecuting the case. Ewing was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has not yet been set.
