Eagle Butte Man Charged with Failure to Appear

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Appear and Contempt.

Brady One Feather, age 30, was indicted on June 12, 2018.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on June 28, 2018, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 5 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that on or about May 17, 2018, One Feather knowingly failed to appear for a scheduled hearing in district court which he was summoned and required to appear.

The charges are merely accusations and One Feather is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.   

One Feather was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
