United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Domestic Assault by Habitual Offender and Assault with a Dangerous Weapon.

Myra Ree, age 24, was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 15, 2013. She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on June 10, 2013, and pled not guilty to the indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in custody, a $250,000 fine, or both; 3 years of supervised release; and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.

The charge is merely an accusation and Ree is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher is prosecuting the case.

Ree was released pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
