United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Dupree, South Dakota man convicted of Striking, Bearing, or Wounding was sentenced on February 10, 2022, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.
Bradley Speker, age 30, was sentenced to six months in federal prison, followed by one year of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $25.
Speker was indicted by a federal grand jury on January 12, 2021. He pled guilty on February 10, 2022.
The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred on January 7, 2021, in Eagle Butte, South Dakota, wherein Speker assaulted an individual by striking the victim with his fist.
This case was investigated by Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.
Speker was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
