Eagle Butte Man Sentenced for Stabbing
Assistant United States Attorney
United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte man charged with Assault With a Dangerous Weapon was sentenced on July 16, 2012, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Ervin Daniel Addison, age 30, was sentenced to 29 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.
Addison was indicted for Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury by a federal grand jury on February 14, 2012, and pled guilty to Assault with a Dangerous Weapon on April 30, 2012. The conviction stems from an incident on July 23, 2011, when Cheyenne River Tribal Police responded to a reported stabbing. The tribal police investigated and determined that Addison had stabbed the victim in the sternum.
This case was investigated by Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant United States Attorney Kathryn Rich prosecuted the case.
Addison was immediately turned over to the custody of the United States Marshal to begin serving his sentence.
