Rosebud Man Sentenced For Assault With A Dangerous Weapon

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota man convicted of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon was sentenced on June 24, 2013 by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Mitchell Stoneman, age 22, was sentenced to 36 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, $4,445 in restitution, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Stoneman was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 15, 2013 and pled guilty to the charge on April 8, 2013.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on October 11, 2012, when Stoneman assaulted the victim with a bat and rock, with intent to do bodily harm to the victim.

The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher.

Stoneman was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals.
