United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, woman charged with Making False Statements to a Federal Agency was sentenced on May 22, 2012, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Alex White Eyes, age 22, was sentenced to 18 months' probation, a $250 fine, and a $200 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

White Eyes was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 14, 2011, and pled guilty to the charge on March 28, 2012.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place May 3, 2011, and again on May 12, 2011, when White Eyes gave false statements to an FBI Agent about how a child's injuries were treated at a hospital in Eagle Butte. White Eyes falsely said medical staff removed the child's cast when she knew that was a lie.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Tim Maher.
