United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, woman convicted of Assault by Striking, Beating and Wounding and Simple Assault was sentenced on July 8, 2013, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno. 

Kelcey Andrews, age 22, was sentenced to 18 months’ probation on each count, 400 hours of community service, and $35 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Andrews was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 13, 2013, and pled guilty to the charge on May 7, 2013.

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, punched the victim in the face and then grabbed the victim by her hair.

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