US Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Kelly Crow Dog, age 27, of Rosebud, South Dakota, appeared before US District Judge Roberto A. Lange on January 10, 2013, and pled guilty to one count of Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years of imprisonment, $250,000 fine, or both.

The charge stems from an incident on August 7, 2012, when Crow Dog argued with the victim, grabbed her hair and shirt, threw her on the ground, placed a knife on her throat, and stabbed her left hand.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers is prosecuting the case. Crow Dog was released and ordered to self-report on January 14, 2013. A sentencing date has been set for April 8, 2013.
