Pierre Man Charged with Assaulting a Federal Officer

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Pierre, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Assaulting, Resisting, and Impeding a Federal Officer.

Loren Goodlow, age 29, was indicted on October 16, 2018.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on January 8, 2019, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 8 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 3 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that on August 28, 2018, Goodlow did forcibly assault, resist, oppose, impede, and interfere with a Bureau of Indian Affairs Correction Officer, while they were performing their official duties.

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

The investigation is being conducted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Crow Creek Agency.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley is prosecuting the case.   

Goodlow was released on bond pending trial.  A jury trial has been scheduled for April 2, 2019.
