United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Allen, South Dakota man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for assault with a knife on February 23, 2013, and for sexual abuse in the spring of 2012.

Curtis Dupris, age 32, was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 19, 2013 for Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury, and Aggravated Sexual Abuse. Dupris appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on March 22, 2013 and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to life imprisonment and a $250,000 fine.

The charges are merely accusations and Dupris is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Office of Justice Services, and the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety. Dupris was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has been set for May 28, 2013.
