US Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte man charged with Assaulting, Resisting or Impeding a Federal Officer was sentenced on January 8, 2013, by US District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Matthew Dupris, age 24, was sentenced to 13 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, and a $100 assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

Dupris was indicted for the above charge by a federal grand jury on June 12, 2012. The charge stems from an incident occurring on March 8, 2012, in which Dupris assaulted a federal officer after being detained on suspicion of driving under the influence. Dupris was placed under arrest after failing the sobriety tests. At the detention facility, Dupris swung at an officer, hitting him in the face with his fists. The officer suffered a concussion as a result of the assault.

The investigation was conducted by Cheyenne River Sioux Tribal Law Enforcement Services, and Assistant United States Attorney Kathryn N. Rich prosecuted the case.

Dupris was immediately turned over to the custody of the US Marshal.
