United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Appear and Escape from Custody.
Anthony One Star, Jr., a/k/a Tony One Star, age 30, was indicted on May 15, 2018. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on May 23, 2018, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.
The maximum penalty upon conviction for each count is up to 5 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.
One Star was previously indicted for Assaulting, Resisting and Impeding a Federal Officer.
