Mission Man Sentenced for Assaulting a Federal Officer

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 July 8, 2019, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Dayvon Sanchez, age 20, was sentenced to time served through October 1, 2019 (approximately 7 months), in federal prison, 2 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Sanchez was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 14, 2018.  He pled guilty on April 29, 2019.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred in Mission, on November 19, 2017.  On that date, Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services Officers responded to a report that Sanchez had taken a vehicle and was driving drunk.  The officers subsequently located Sanchez at a residence in Mission and informed him he was under arrest.  Sanchez physically resisted, and kicked one of the officers.

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

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