PIERRE — A federal grand jury has indicted an Eagle Butte woman on assault and drug charges. Acting U-S Attorney Dennis Holmes says 40 year-old Frances Montero was indicted August 10th. She has pleaded not guilty to charges of Assaulting, Resisting and Impeding a Federal Officer and two counts of Possession with Intent to Distribute a Controlled Substance. The Indictment claims that on May 21st and June 1st of this year, Montero had methamphetamine in Eagle Butte with the intent to distribute it. Montero’s resistance to her arrest caused the officer to cut his finger. The fall dislodged a meth pipe, causing it to shatter. Montero was released on bond. A trial date has not been set. Montero could get, if convicted, up to 20 years in federal prison and a one-million dollar fine and possibly probation for life.
