United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Little Eagle, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for two counts of Sexual Abuse.

Grady Laine Uses Arrow, age 21, was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 13, 2012. He appeared before United States Magistrate Judge William D. Gerdes on March 28, 2012, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to life in custody, a $250,000 fine, or both; not less than 5 years up to life of supervised release; and a $100 Special Assessment.

The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Standing Rock Agency.
