United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a St. Francis man convicted of involuntary manslaughter was sentenced on January 10, 2013, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Dino Dean Kane, age 23, was sentenced to 40 months in custody, two years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.
Kane was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 22, 2012, and pled guilty to the charge on October 10, 2012.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place on August 4, 2012, when Kane was driving a motor vehicle recklessly and could not keep the vehicle on the roadway. The victim died from injuries sustained in the crash.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Tim Maher.
Kane was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshals Service.
