Rapid City Woman Sentenced for Retaliation Against a Witness | USAO-SD

Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, woman convicted of Retaliation Against a Witness was sentenced on April 26, 2021, by Chief U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Whitney Bagola, age 27, was sentenced to 57 months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Bagola was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 8, 2020.  She pled guilty on March 1, 2021.

The conviction stemmed from an incident on April 20, 2020, at a jail in South Dakota, when Bagola assaulted an individual for giving information to law enforcement. 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron J. Cook prosecuted the case.

Bagola was immediately remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
