Green Grass Man Indicted for Assault

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Green Grass, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury.

Andrew Frost, age 20, was indicted on October 12, 2016.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark Moreno on October 14, 2016, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 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 Indictment alleges that on June 25, 2016, in Ziebach County, Frost unlawfully assaulted the victim, and that the victim sustained serious bodily injury as a result. 

The charge is merely an accusation and Frost is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.   

Frost was released on conditions pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
