United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Martin, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon was sentenced by Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.
Jonathan Bad Wound, age 54, was sentenced on December 7, 2020, to time served, 3 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Bad Wound was indicted by a federal grand jury in June 2017. The charge related to Bad Wound and the victim engaging in a verbal argument that escalated into a physical altercation in May 2016. After throwing Bad Wound to the ground, the victim got into his truck to leave Bad Wound’s driveway. Bad Wound went to the back of his house, grabbed a rifle, loaded it, and fired three rounds at the victim’s truck. Bullet fragments landed in the victim’s back causing bodily injury.
This case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs – Office of Justice Services, and the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety. Assistant U.S. Attorney Megan Poppen prosecuted the case.
