United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man charged with Assault by Striking, Beating, and Wounding and Simple Assault pled guilty to and was sentenced on July 7, 2014, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.
Anthony Hero, age 29, was sentenced to 231 days in custody with credit for time served and $20 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place between February 1, 2013, and February 2, 2013, when Hero and the victims were at a house party in Rosebud.  After leaving the party, Hero was in a vehicle when he had a disagreement with the two victims.  He assaulted both victims by striking and beating them.   

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

Hero was released from custody.
