Hermosa Man Sentenced for Assault and Escape

U.S. Attorney’s Office April 03, 2013
  • District of South Dakota (605) 330-4400

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Hermosa, South Dakota man convicted of two counts of assault resulting in serious bodily injury and one count of escape, charged in two separate criminal cases, was sentenced on April 1, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Barry Allman, age 22, was sentenced to 84 months in custody, two years of supervised release, and a $200 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund for the two counts of assault resulting in serious bodily injury. Allman was sentenced to 12 months in custody on the Escape conviction, of which six months are consecutive and six months are concurrent with the assault conviction, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

The assault conviction stems from an incident that took place on May 3, 2012, in Parmelee. While at a social gathering, Allman fired a 9mm handgun three times into the ground. Two of the rounds ricocheted and caused serious bodily injury to the victims.

The escape conviction stems from an incident that took place on November 26, 2012 when Allman was released on a furlough from federal custody to attend a funeral. Allman failed to return as ordered and absconded until he was apprehended on December 18, 2012.

The investigations were conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, U.S. Marshals Service, Rapid City Police Department, and the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers.

Allman was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
