United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Assaulting, Resisting, and Impeding a Federal Officer was sentenced on November 12, 2020, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.
Patrick Red Bird, age 36, was sentenced to 11 months in federal prison, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $25.
Red Bird was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 11, 2020. He pled guilty on October 22, 2020.
The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred on December 27, 2019, in Mission. On that date, Red Bird was arrested for disorderly conduct. After being placed in handcuffs, Red Bird lunged at the arresting officer and grabbed him.
This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case.
Red Bird was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
