August 31, 2012, 6:21 PM

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

An annual report from the U.S. Attorney's Office shows that the number of criminal cases filed in federal court in South Dakota has increased by more than 20 percent from 2010 to 2011.

The report shows the U.S. Attorney's Office filed 691 criminal cases in 2011. This is up from 555 in 2010. Of the 691 cases, 45 percent were for violent crime. There was also a 13 percent increase in the number of defendants prosecuted from 2010 to 2011.

The U.S. Attorney's Office handles prosecution of federal cases, including cases in Indian Country.

Of the nine Indian reservations in South Dakota, the Pine Ridge and Rosebud Indian Reservations accounted for nearly 2/3 of defendants. The Flandreau Indian Reservation saw the fewest number of defendants with three people charged.
