Mission Man Sentenced for Larceny of Police Vehicle

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 Larceny was sentenced on March 14, 2022, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

Derrick One Star, a/k/a Derek One Star, age 34, was sentenced to eight months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release, $12,775 in restitution, 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 August 10, 2021.  He pled guilty on October 7, 2021.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred on March 28, 2021, near Mission.  On that date, Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services officers responded to a report that One Star was causing a disturbance at a residence in the South Antelope Housing Community.  Officers made contact with One Star outside the residence and attempted to place him under arrest.  One Star pulled away from the officers and fled the scene on foot, with the officers pursuing him.  He then returned to the residence and stole a police patrol vehicle.  One Star was arrested following a short vehicle pursuit, during which he damaged the vehicle.

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

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