United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that an Aberdeen, South Dakota, woman convicted of False Statements was sentenced on August 17, 2017, by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann.

Sherrae Two Hearts, a/k/a Sherrae Twohearts, age 38, was sentenced to time served, 2 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Two Hearts was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 14, 2017. She pled guilty on May 18, 2017.

An investigation was done and the children were observed to be safe, clean, and well fed. Two Hearts admitted to lying to the Special Agent.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Standing Rock Agency. Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley prosecuted the case.
