Mission Man Pleads Guilty and Sentenced for Simple Assault

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

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man charged with Simple Assault pled guilty and was sentenced on March 15, 2017, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Paris James Bordeaux, age 27, was sentenced to 6 months in custody, and $10 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution is being left open for 90 days. Bordeaux’s conviction will count as a domestic violence offense.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on July 24, 2016, when officers with the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services responded to a call regarding domestic abuse occurring at a home in Okreek, in Todd County. Bordeaux admitted to assaulting the victim, who was an intimate partner of Bordeaux.

The investigation was conducted by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorneys Carrie G. Sanderson and Jeremy R. Jehangiri.

Bordeaux was ordered to report to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service on April 18, 2017.
