United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for First Degree Burglary, Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, and Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury.

Tyler Red Eagle, age 22, was indicted on March 11, 2014. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on April 17, 2014, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 25 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, 5 years of supervised release, and up to $700 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.
The Indictment alleges that on or about July 2, 2013, at Soldier Creek, Red Eagle and other defendants unlawfully entered and remained in two residences and assaulted a victim in one of the residences with a metal object which resulted in serious bodily injury.

The charge is merely an accusation and Red Eagle is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers is prosecuting the case.   

Red Eagle was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial, which has been set for June 3, 2014.
