United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Roxanne Spotted Horse, age 31, of Little Eagle, South Dakota, appeared before U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann on July 1, 2013, and pled guilty to a Superseding Information that charged her with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon. 

The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years of imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both; 3 years of supervised release and an additional 2 years of supervised release upon revocation. Restitution and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund may also be ordered. 

The conviction stems from an incident on January 24, 2013, in which Spotted Horse was socializing at her residence with the victim, among others.  Spotted Horse and the victim had previously been in a dating relationship.  An argument started between Spotted Horse and her victim, and as the argument became more intense, Spotted Horse grabbed a metal bar and hit the victim on the head.  An ambulance was summoned and the victim received medical attention for his head injury.

The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Standing Rock Agency.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley is prosecuting the case. 

Spotted Horse was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending sentencing, which has been set for September 23, 2013.
