United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Misty Fawn Swalley, age 22, of Mission appeared before United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange on January 9, 2013, and pled guilty to Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and Aiding and Abetting. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years in custody, a $250,000 fine, or both.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on October 1, 2011, when Swalley and others assaulted and beat the victim, which included kicking the victim with shod feet and cutting the victim with a broken bottle.

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

Swalley must report to the custody of the United States Marshal on February 15, 2013.
