Yankton Woman Sentenced for Obtaining a Controlled Substance by Misrepresentation, Fraud, Forgery, Deception, and Subterfuge
United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that two Eagle Butte, South Dakota, men convicted of Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury and Aiding and Abetting, have been sentenced by U.S. District Court Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Andrew Good Eagle, age 19, was sentenced on February 22, 2019, to 27 months in federal prison, 3 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100. Christian Marshall, age 27, was sentenced on March 4, 2019, to 63 months in federal prison, 3 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.
Good Eagle and Marshall were indicted by a federal grand jury on August 13, 2019. Marshall plead guilty on November 30, 2018, and Good Eagle plead guilty on December 7, 2018.
The conviction stemmed from an incident on August 6, 2018, when Marshall and Good Eagle assaulted the victim – who was inside a tent - by punching him, kicking with him shod feet, and striking him with a piece of metal rebar multiple times. The victim sustained three lacerations on his head, which were nine inches in length. The lacerations required a total 57 staples/sutures to close. The victim also sustained a fractured kneecap and a broken finger.
This case was investigated by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.
Marshall and Good Eagle were both immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
