Mission Man Charged with Assault

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury and Assault Resulting in Substantial Bodily Injury.

Brandon Jones, age 24, was indicted on November 14, 2017.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on April 6, 2018, 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 or about May 6, 2017, Jones did unlawfully assault two individuals which resulted in serious bodily injury, and assaulted a third individual which resulted in substantial bodily injury.

The charges are merely accusations and Jones is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

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

Jones remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial.
