Rosebud Man Charged With Assault With Intent to Commit Murder

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assault With Intent to Commit Murder, Assault With a Dangerous Weapon and Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury.

Lawrence Gary, Jr., age 19, was indicted on February 14, 2018. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on February 16, 2018, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 20 years in prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that on January 21, 2018, Gary assaulted a man with a knife, a pan, and with shod feet.

The charges are merely accusations and Gary is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.  

The investigation is being conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson is prosecuting the case.

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