Eagle Butte Woman Sentenced For Simple Assault

Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, woman charged with Simple Assault pled guilty and was sentenced on May 18, 2015, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Lisa Lone Eagle, age 34, was sentenced to 83 days in custody and a $10.00 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on December 9, 2014, when Lone Eagle and her brother were walking down the street in Cherry Creek, South Dakota, and the victim was walking ahead of them. Lone Eagle and her brother were angry at the victim for providing an interview with the Cheyenne River Sioux Police Department that implicated Lone Eagle’s brother in a federal crime. Lone Eagle threatened and yelled obscenities at the victim and picked up an iron bar and threw it at the victim. The iron bar missed the victim and she was not injured.

The investigation was conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. This case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson.

Lone Eagle was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
