United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Pine Ridge, South Dakota, man convicted of Accessory to Second Degree Murder was sentenced by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Fred Quiver, a/k/a Fred Brings Plenty, age 32, was sentenced on May 21, 2018, to 15 years in federal prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Quiver was indicted for the charge by a federal grand jury in January 2016.  The charge related to Quiver covering up the homicide of Emily Bluebird and hiding her body to prevent his and his co-defendant’s apprehension, trial, and punishment.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Office of Justice Services, the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorneys Megan Poppen and Kathryn Rich prosecuted the case.

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