A South Dakota woman has pleaded guilty to assaulting a federal law officer.
Thirty-nine-year-old Jerilyn Grassrope was accused of resisting an officer who arrested her at a Lower Brule residence in July, resulting in the officer cutting her hand. Authorities say Grassrope also kicked the officer several times while being put in a patrol car.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says Grassrope faces up to eight year in prison when she is sentenced December 19.
