Eagle Butte Man Sentenced for Assault by Strangulation and Suffocation

Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault by Strangulation and Suffocation was sentenced on June 7, 2021, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

Seth Stadel, a/k/a Seth Carter, age 27, was sentenced to 57 months in federal prison, followed by 3 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100. 

Stadel was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 11, 2020.  He pled guilty on March 22, 2021.

The conviction stemmed from an incident that occurred on June 10, 2020, near Lantry, South Dakota, wherein Stadel assaulted his intimate partner by grabbing her by the throat and strangling her until she began to lose consciousness.  When she tried to run away, Stadel tackled her, breaking her arm.

This case was investigated by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.

Stadel was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
