US Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Judson His Law, a/k/a Judson Two Dogs, age 18, of Eagle Butte, South Dakota, appeared before US District Judge Roberto A. Lange on January 23, 2013, and pled guilty to Count I of the Indictment that charged him with Possession of a Stolen Firearm. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years' imprisonment, a $250,000 fine or both, and a period of supervised release of 3 years.

The investigation was conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribal Law Enforcement Services. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant US Attorney Mikal Hanson.

A presentence investigation was ordered, and a sentencing date was set for April 15, 2013. The defendant was remanded to the custody of the US Marshal pending sentencing.
