Mission Man Sentenced For Assault

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

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission man convicted of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon was sentenced on January 10, 2013, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Byron Eagleman, age 31, was sentenced to 30 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on April 30, 2012, when Eagleman, who was highly intoxicated, cut and stabbed the victim while the victim attempted to prevent a fight between Eagleman and another person.

The investigation was conducted by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers.

Eagleman was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal.
