Eagle Butte Man Charged with Perjury
United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Perjury and False Declaration Before a Court.
Charlie Warren Marshall, age 26, was indicted on May 16, 2017. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on June 8, 2017, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.
The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 5 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.
The Indictment alleges that on or about the 13th day of March, 2017, Marshall, after having taken an oath before a U.S. District Judge for the District of South Dakota that he would testify, declare, depose and certify truthfully, knowingly and willfully stated that he was not under the influence of alcohol at his change of plea hearing, when he knew that statement to be false.
The charges are merely accusations and Marshall is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney SaraBeth Donovan is prosecuting the case.
Marshall was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
