United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a St. Francis, South Dakota, woman charged with Concealing Person from Arrest was sentenced on November 8, 2012, by United States Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno. Jamie Iron Shell, age 20, was sentenced to 3 months in custody, 1 year of supervised release, and a $25 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

Iron Shell was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 8, 2012, and pled guilty to the charge on August 20, 2012.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on March 30, 2012, when federal agents arrived at Iron Shell’s residence to serve an arrest warrant on an individual. Iron Shell told the agents that individual had departed her residence when in fact he was actually inside her residence.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Tim Maher.

Iron Shell was released with credit for time served.
