Dupree Woman Charged with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and Child Abuse
United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Dupree, South Dakota, woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and Child Abuse.
Cache Hebb, age 23, was indicted on December 10, 2019. She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on December 16, 2019, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.
The maximum penalty upon conviction is 15 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, and $200 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.
The Indictment alleges that on or about March 8, 2019, Hebb assaulted a minor child, who was under the age of seven, with a dangerous weapon, a hairbrush, and did abuse, expose, torture, torment, and cruelly punish the minor child.
The charges are merely accusations and Hebb is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Hebb was released on bond pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
