United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man convicted of Assaulting, Resisting, and Impeding a Federal Officer was sentenced on October 7, 2019, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Michael Anthony Toledo, age 39, was sentenced to 4 months in federal prison, followed by 4 months home confinement, 2 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.
Toledo was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 12, 2019. He pled guilty on July 22, 2019.
The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred on April 18, 2017, when Toledo did forcibly assault and interfere with a law enforcement officer who was employed by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services, when Toledo repeatedly spat upon the officer while being arrested.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael J. Elmore prosecuted the case.
Toledo was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
