Mission Man Sentenced for Assault

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

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Assaulting, Resisting, and Impeding a Federal Officer was sentenced on January 28, 2020, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

Logan James Fast Horse, age 22, was sentenced to 30 months in federal prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, $335.42 in restitution, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Fast Horse was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 14, 2019.  He pled guilty on November 6, 2019.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred on April 5, 2019, when Fast Horse did forcibly assault, oppose, impede, intimidate, and interfere with a law enforcement officer who was employed by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services, and that such conduct involved the use of a dangerous weapon.

This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael J. Elmore prosecuted the case.

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