Rosebud Woman Sentenced For Assault By Striking, Beating And Wounding And Simple Assault

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, woman convicted of Assault by Striking, Beating and Wounding and Simple Assault was sentenced on September 6, 2013, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.  

Myra Ree, a/k/a Myra Iron Shell, age 24, was sentenced to 18 months of probation and a $20 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Ree was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 15, 2013, and pled guilty on September 6, 2013.

The conviction arose from a physical fight that took place on January 28, 2013, between Ree and the victim.  Ree struck the victim and then bit him on the face and the arm, wounding him.  When examined by law enforcement, the victim had large bite marks, one of which drew blood.  The victim and Ree are domestic partners.

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