For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota man convicted of Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding Certain Officers was sentenced on June 28, 2013 by U.S. District Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Jesse Young, age 36, was sentenced to 12 months in custody and $25 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Young was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 11, 2012, and pled guilty to the charge on March 15, 2013.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on May 29, 2012 when the victim was escorting Young to a restraint chair. Young was non-compliant and spat at the victim, hitting the victim with saliva on his face and ear.

The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers.

Young was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
