United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota man convicted of Assault by Habitual Domestic Offender was sentenced on March 25, 2013 by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Willard Dorian, age 36, was sentenced to 38 months, 2 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

Dorian was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 12, 2012 and pled guilty to the charge on January 7, 2013.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on July 3, 2011 when Dorian assaulted his domestic partner causing her bodily injury.

The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers.

Dorian was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
