1 min read

Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assaulting, Resisting, and Impeding a Federal Officer.

Todd Kal Wilcox, age 41, was indicted on October 13, 2021.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on December 17, 2021, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 20 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, three years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that on July 15, 2021, in Todd County, South Dakota, Wilcox did assault, oppose, impede, intimidate, and interfere with a law enforcement officer who was employed by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services, and that such conduct involved the use of a dangerous weapon.


The charge is merely an accusation and Wilcox is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
