Mission Man Sentenced for Criminal Contempt

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 Criminal Contempt was sentenced on August 16, 2019, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Frank Iron Heart, age 39, was sentenced to time served and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $10.

Iron Heart was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 13, 2019.  He pled guilty on August 16, 2019.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred on December 18, 2018, when Iron Heart willfully and unlawfully disobeyed and resisted a subpoena issued by the U.S. District Court requiring him to appear at a federal hearing in Pierre, South Dakota.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael J. Elmore prosecuted the case.
