United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man charged with Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding a Federal Officer was sentenced on June 19, 2012, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Joel Emery Marshall, age 47, was sentenced to 14 months in custody, 3 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

Marshall was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 14, 2011, and pled guilty to the charge on March 2, 2012.

Marshall was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal.
