United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Kelcey Andrews, age 21, of Rosebud, South Dakota, appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on May 7, 2013, and pled guilty to Assault by Striking, Beating and Wounding, and Simple Assault.  The maximum penalty upon conviction on each count is 6 months in custody, a $5,000 fine, or both; and $10 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on August 3, 2012, when Andrews reached into the front passenger window of a car in which the victim was located and punched the victim in the face, and then grabbed the victim by the hair.

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

A presentence investigation was ordered, and a sentencing date was set for July 8, 2013.  Andrews was released on bond pending sentencing.
