United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota man convicted of Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury was sentenced on April 9, 2013 by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Kelly Crow Dog, age 27, was sentenced to 30 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund. Crow Dog was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 29, 2012 and pled guilty to the charge on January 10, 2013.

The conviction stems from an incident on August 7, 2012, wherein 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. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers.

Crow Dog was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
