Rosebud Man Sentenced on Assault Charge
Assistant United States Attorney
U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud man charged with Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury was sentenced on July 2, 2012, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Joseph Cloudman, age 30, was sentenced to 30 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment.
Cloudman was indicted by a federal grand jury in September 2011. He pled guilty to the indictment on April 11, 2012. The conviction stems from an incident that took place in October 2010 when Cloudman punched the victim in the face, causing her to suffer a broken jaw and other broken facial bones. The victim had three medical procedures to repair the injuries.
This case was investigated by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher prosecuted the case.
Cloudman was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
