Eagle Butte Woman Indicted for Failure to Appear

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, woman has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Appear. 

Daryl Eagle Horse, a/k/a Daryl Hawk Eagle, age 29, was indicted on November 8, 2016.  She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Moreno on November 9, 2016, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 2 years in custody 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 term of imprisonment imposed for the Failure to be Appear charge must be consecutive to the sentence of imprisonment for the criminal offense for which she failed to appear in court.

The Indictment alleges that between November 1, 2016, and November 2, 2016, Eagle Horse, after having been released from custody on charges of Forgery and Larceny, failed to appear in Federal District Court for further court proceedings as required.

The charge is merely an accusation and Eagle Horse 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.   

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