United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a St. Francis, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon was sentenced on May 1, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.  Darius Two Eagle, age 21, was sentenced to 36 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Two Eagle was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 15, 2012, and pled guilty to the charge on February 5, 2013.

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

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

Two Eagle was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
