Kyle Man Sentenced For Assault

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Kyle, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault by Striking, Beating, or Wounding was sentenced on October 23, 2014, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy.

Vinnie Makes Good, age 26, was sentenced to 12 months in custody, 1 year of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund and $352.50 in restitution.
The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred in Kyle on November 17, 2013, when Makes Good, along with two other men, entered a man’s yard and assaulted him and his son with their fists, causing injuries.
This case was investigated by the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Office of Justice Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah Collins prosecuted the case.
Makes Good was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
