Manderson Man Sentenced for Assaulting a Federal Officer

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Manderson, South Dakota, man convicted of Assaulting a Federal Officer was sentenced on January 27, 2016, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Daneta Wollmann.

Frank Boerschig, age 50, was sentenced to 3 months in custody, 1 year of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Boerschig was indicted for the charge on September 15, 2015, and pleaded guilty on December 11, 2015.

The conviction stems from Boerschig not complying with the commands of an officer, and then wrestling with and striking the officer in the upper lip on June 24, 2015, at Manderson.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Office of Justice Services, the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Kelderman prosecuted the case.

Boerschig was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
