United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man charged with Assault Resulting in Substantial Bodily Injury was sentenced on May 1, 2012, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Nathan I. Eastman, age 32, was sentenced to 27 months in custody, 3 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.
On February 14, 2012, Eastman pled guilty to a Superseding Information that charged him with Assault Resulting in Substantial Bodily Injury to a Minor. The conviction stems from the suspect's assault of a minor in December 2000 at McLaughlin, South Dakota.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Standing Rock Agency. Assistant United States Attorneys Britt Haxton and Mikal Hanson prosecuted the case.
Eastman was immediately turned over to the custody of the United States Marshal to begin serving his sentence.
