Corson County Man Sentenced to Nearly 5 Years for Domestic Assault by an Habitual Offender

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that Milo Reuben Red Tomahawk, age 38, of Little Eagle, South Dakota, was sentenced to 57 months in federal prison for his conviction of Domestic Assault by an Habitual Offender. 

U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann pronounced the sentence in federal court in Aberdeen, South Dakota.  Red Tomahawk was also ordered to serve three years of supervised release after his release from prison and to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  

According to court filings, Red Tomahawk unlawfully committed a domestic assault upon the victim, when at the time of the domestic assault, he had a final conviction on at least two separate prior occasions, for offenses that would have been, if subject to federal jurisdiction, an assault against a spouse and intimate partner.  This assault took place in May 2017.

The investigation was conducted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs-Office of Justice Services and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeremy R. Jehangiri prosecuted the case.   

Red Tomahawk was immediately remanded to custody to continue serving his sentence.
