Little Eagle Man Sentenced for Burglary

ABERDEEN - United States Attorney Alison J. Ramsdell announced today that U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann has sentenced a Little Eagle, South Dakota, man convicted of First-Degree Burglary. The sentencing took place on December 12, 2022.

Dustin Jade Red Fox, age 30, was sentenced to 27 months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Red Fox was indicted for First Degree Burglary by a federal grand jury in July of 2022. He pleaded guilty on September 26, 2022.

In June 2022, in Little Eagle, within the Standing Rock Sioux Indian Reservation, Red Fox entered the residence of his former dating partner without permission and assaulted her. Red Fox then attempted to start the residence on fire by burning a blanket on a stove.

This case was investigated by Bureau of Indian Affairs, Office of Justice Services, Standing Rock Agency, and the Bureau of Alcohol, Firearms, Tobacco and Explosives. Assistant U.S. Attorney Cameron J. Cook prosecuted the case.

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