Kansas Man Sentenced for Simple Assault

Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Kansas man charged with Simple Assault pled guilty to and was sentenced on June 25, 2015, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Sebastian Rosas, age 43, was sentenced to 8 days in custody, and a $10 assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on June 17, 2015, in Eagle Butte, South Dakota, when Rosas attempted to keep the victim from walking away from him by grabbing at her, scratching her neck, and pulling her hair.

The investigation was conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Law Enforcement Services.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller.
