United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Mission, South Dakota, woman convicted of Assaulting, Resisting, and Impeding a Federal Officer was sentenced on March 7, 2022, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.
Carlianna Erickson, a/k/a Carlianna Erickson-Redday, age 25, was sentenced to nine months in federal prison, followed by one year of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $25.
Erickson was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 8, 2021. She pled guilty on January 31, 2022.

This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case.
Erickson was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
