U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Ft. Thompson man charged with Assault With a Dangerous Weapon was sentenced on March 27, 2012, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Conrad Fleury, age 30, was sentenced to 24 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, and a $100 assessment.
Fleury was indicted by a federal grand jury in August 2011. In January 2012 he pled guilty to Count I of the Indictment. The conviction stems from an incident on July 4, 2011, and into the early morning hours of July 5, 2011, when the defendant and the victim were drinking alcohol at a residence. While being driven home, the defendant became upset with the victim, and an ongoing altercation occurred resulting in the victim being hit and kicked in the face and body by the defendant.
The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Crow Creek Agency. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges.
Fleury was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
