United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a White River, South Dakota woman convicted of Simple Assault and Aiding and Abetting has pled guilty to the charges and was sentenced on June 28, 2013 by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Jarashae Vanderwalker, age 20, was sentenced to 12 months’ probation and $10 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on April 3, 2011, when Vanderwalker and others assaulted the victim with a bat. The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers.

Vanderwalker was released.
