Eagle Butte Man Sentence For Assault Resulting In Serious Bodily Injury

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man convicted in July by a federal jury of Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury was sentenced on October 28, 2013, U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Stanley Blake Morrison, age 32, was sentenced to 37 months in custody, 18 months of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stemmed from a January 2013 incident in which Morrison assaulted a Cherry Creek man with his fists, fracturing several facial bones and causing serious injury to the victim.

The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division conducted the investigation.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson.

Morrison was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to begin serving his sentence.
