For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that a Dupree, South Dakota, woman convicted of Assault by Striking, Beating, or Wounding was sentenced on July 27, 2021, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Cache Patricia Hebb, age 25, was sentenced to 6 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.

Hebb was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 10, 2019.  She pled guilty on July 27, 2021.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred in Dupree on July 3, 2019, wherein Hebb used a hairbrush to discipline a child.  Hebb used unreasonable force and caused bruising to the child.

This case was investigated by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges prosecuted the case.

Hebb was ordered to self-surrender to the U.S. Marshals Service on August 10, 2021.
