Two Dupree Men Charged with Assault

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that two Dupree, South Dakota, men have been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury.

Charles Hollow Horn, age 20, and Bradley Speker, age 24, were indicted on April 13, 2016. They appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on April 15, 2016, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that on or about December 8, 2015, both Hollow Horn and Speker unlawfully assaulted another man with shod feet with the intent to do bodily harm.  The assault resulted in serious bodily injury to the victim.

The charge are merely accusations and Hollow Horn and Speker are presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.   

Hollow Horn and Speker were released on bond pending trial, which has not been set.
