United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Pine Ridge, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and Assault by Striking, Beating or Wounding was sentenced on December 2, 2013, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Jon Craig Dillon, age 25, was sentenced to 37 months of imprisonment, 3 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund for Assault with a Dangerous Weapon.  For Assault by Striking, Beating or Wounding, Dillon was sentenced to 6 months of imprisonment and 3 years of supervised release, to run concurrently to the first sentence, and $25 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Dillon pled guilty to the charges on August 2, 2013.  The conviction stems from Dillon assaulting his female companion numerous times in 2012.  The assaults resulted in injuries to the kidney and the head, choking injuries, and extensive bruising covering her body.
         
This case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Office of justice Services, and the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn N. Rich prosecuted the case.
         
Dillon was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
