United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, woman convicted of Assault Resulting in Substantial Bodily Injury was sentenced on July 8, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.   

Toni Good Shield, a/k/a Toni Little Thunder, age 30, was sentenced to time served of 112 days in custody, 18 months of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Good Shield was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 13, 2013, and pled guilty to the charge on April 16, 2013.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on February 7, 2013, when Good Shield kicked the victim causing a fracture to her left leg and a bloody nose. 

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