Parmelee Man Sentenced for Assaulting a Federal Officer

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

United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Parmelee, South Dakota, man convicted of Assaulting, Resisting, and Impeding a Federal Officer was sentenced on January 6, 2022, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

Odell Good Shield, age 34, was sentenced to time served through February 15, 2022, equal to approximately seven months, followed by three years of supervised release, with the first three months to be served on home confinement, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Good Shield was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 11, 2021.  He pled guilty on October 6, 2021.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred in the early morning hours of March 17, 2021.  On that date, Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Service officers responded to a report that Good Shield was drunk and causing a disturbance at a residence in Todd County, South Dakota.  Good Shield was subsequently arrested and transported to the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Adult Correctional Facility.  During the transport, the arresting officer pulled over the patrol vehicle to secure Good Shield’s wrist restraints.  Another officer stopped to assist. Good Shield then became non-compliant and kicked the assisting officer in the chest.

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

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