Rosebud Man Charged with Distribution of a Controlled Substance and Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Distribution of a Controlled Substance and Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance.

Lloyd One Star, age 26, was indicted on November 9, 2016.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on November 28, 2016, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 20 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.
