Bismarck Man Sentenced On Assault Charges

U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Bismarck, North Dakota, man convicted of Simple Assault and Assault by Striking, Beating or Wounding was sentenced on January 8, 2013, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno. Harlan J. Fisher, age 44, was sentenced to 12 months in custody and a $20 special assessment.

Fisher was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 12, 2012. He pled guilty to a superseding information on January 8, 2013. The conviction stems from an incident on June 2, 2012, when Fisher unlawfully assaulted the victim by striking the victim in the mouth and also on top of her head, causing injury.

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

Fisher was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
