Illinois Man Sentenced to Federal Prison for Passing Counterfeit United States Currency and Attempted Passing Counterfeit United States Currency
United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota, woman convicted of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon was sentenced on April 29, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Dadra Connors, age 35, was sentenced to 30 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Connors was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 18, 2012, and pled guilty to the charge on January 9, 2013.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place on May 20, 2012, when Connors drove her truck at the victim as he was walking across a gravel road. The victim dove into the ditch to avoid being hit. During the process, a second victim was ejected from the cargo area of Connors' truck and was injured.
The investigation was conducted by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy M. Maher.
Connors was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
