Rosebud Man Charged With Assaulting A Federal Officer

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assaulting, Resisting, Opposing, and Impeding a Federal Officer.

Anthony One Star, Jr., age 27, was indicted on January 14, 2015. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on January 26, 2015, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 8 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.

One Star is alleged to have forcibly assaulted, resisted, opposed, and impeded a Rosebud Sioux Tribe law enforcement officer in November 2014, in Rosebud.  The incident resulted in physical contact with the officer.

The charge is merely an accusation and One Star 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 Tim Maher is prosecuting the case.   

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