Pine Ridge Man Sentenced for Assaulting a Woman

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Pine Ridge, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon was sentenced on November 8, 2016, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Leslie Gayle White Calf, age 33, was sentenced to 18 months of imprisonment, followed by 3 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

White Calf was charged on January 26, 2016, and pleaded guilty on July 22, 2016.  The conviction stems from White Calf kicking a woman in the face and head several times, while wearing work-style boots at a home in Pine Ridge.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs Office of Justice Services, and the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah B. Collins prosecuted the case.

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