United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man charged with Assault by Striking, Beating and Wounding was sentenced on May 11, 2012, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Paul DeNoyer, age 23, was sentenced to 2 years probation, a $500 fine, and a $10 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

Denoyer was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 12, 2011, and pled guilty to the charge on March 20, 2012.

The conviction stems from a confrontation that ensued between DeNoyer and the victim. DeNoyer struck the victim in the forehead causing a 7mm laceration which required staples to close.
The investigation was conducted by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Tim Maher.
