United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man charged with Concealing and Destroying Evidence was sentenced on December 17, 2012, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Calvin Gillette, age 21, was sentenced to 4 months in custody, 6 months of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on August 4, 2011, when Gillette took a knife that was used in an alleged assault by his co-defendant and threw it into a reservoir. The knife was never recovered.

The investigation was conducted by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers.

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