United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man convicted of Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding a Federal Officer was sentenced on November 25, 2013, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.
Anthony One Star, age 26, was sentenced to 60 days in custody and a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
One Star was indicted for Assaulting, Resisting, Opposing, and Impeding a Federal Officer by a federal grand jury on September 17, 2013. He pled guilty on November 25, 2013.
The conviction stems from an incident in Mission on August 19, 2013, when One Star was intoxicated and walked into a home where he didn't belong. The home owner summoned law enforcement officers, and a Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services Officer responded and found One Star sleeping on the kitchen floor. The officer awoke One Star, who apologized for being intoxicated but said that he just wanted to sleep, and he also indicated he was on probation and was not supposed to be drinking. The Officer attempted to take the One Star to jail for the violations, but One Star did not cooperate and he spat upon the officer.
This case was investigated by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher prosecuted the case.
One Star was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
