Mission Man Sentenced for Simple Assault

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

Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Simple Assault of a Minor was sentenced on September 21, 2021, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Xavier Quiver, a/k/a Xavier Medicine Blanket, age 26, was sentenced to 10 months in federal prison, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $25.

Quiver was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 14, 2020.  He pled guilty on June 24, 2021.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred on February 9, 2020, in Mission.  On that date, Quiver was in a parked vehicle with family members when he became angry and reached into the back seat and struck a four-year-old child in the head and face.

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

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