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

United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon was sentenced on March 14, 2022, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

Wamblee One Star, a/k/a Wamblee Kane, age 40, was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

One Star was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 8, 2020.  He pled guilty on December 2, 2021.

The conviction stems from an incident on November 28, 2020, in Todd County, South Dakota, when One Star entered a convenience store and took the keys to a car from an individual.  When the victim attempted to get his keys back, One Star assaulted him with a knife causing a laceration to his hand.   

This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.

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