Norris Man Charged With Assault With A Dangerous Weapon And Assault Resulting In Serious Bodily Injury

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

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Norris, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury.

Chauncy Crow Dog, age 19, was indicted on August 21, 2013, for Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury.  Crow Dog appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on August 28, 2013, and pled not guilty to the Indictment. 

The maximum penalty on each count upon conviction is 10 years of imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine; 3 years of supervised release; an additional 2 years of supervised release upon revocation; and a mandatory $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered. 

The charges stem from an incident on August 14, 2013, when Crow Dog allegedly assaulted two individuals in the parking lot of the Paul Mart convenience store in Rosebud.  The charges are merely accusations, and Crow Dog is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher is prosecuting the case.         

Crow Dog was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.  A trial date has not been set.
