Rosebud Man Sentenced for Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding a Federal Officer

Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man convicted of Assaulting, Resisting, or Impeding a Federal Officer was sentenced on July 13, 2015, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Anthony One Star, age 27, was sentenced to 11 months of custody, followed by 1 year of supervised release, and a special assessment of $25 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

One Star was indicted by a federal grand jury on January 14, 2015.  He pled guilty on June 2, 2015.

The conviction stems from an incident on November 25, 2014, when One Star went to a friend’s house and would not leave the residence.  One Star, while intoxicated, was being disrespectful and spitting on the kitchen floor.  A police officer was summoned to remove One Star from the home, who refused to leave, and a struggle ensued between the officer and One Star, who kicked at the officer, as well as spat on him.

This case was investigated by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy M. Maher prosecuted the case.

One Star was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
