|U.S. Attorney’s Office November 18, 2013|
United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Alex White Eyes, a 24-year-old woman from Eagle Butte, South Dakota, pled guilty to accessory after the fact and was sentenced on November 14, 2013, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.
White Eyes was sentenced to three years of probation and a $10 assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
In September 2012, White Eyes, knowing that an offender had committed the crime of Assault of a Minor in Indian country, hindered and prevented the offender’s apprehension for trial and punishment by failing to provide this information to the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribal Law Enforcement Department and the South Dakota Department of Social Services.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribal Law Enforcement Department. Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson prosecuted the case.
