United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man charged with Assault by Striking, Beating and Wounding has pled guilty to the charges and was sentenced on August 5, 2013, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno. 

Frank Swalley Jr., age 29, was sentenced to 3 months in custody with credit for time served, and $10 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on October 1, 2011, when Swalley and others assaulted and beat the victim, which included Swalley grabbing the victim by the neck.

The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher.  Swalley was released from custody.
