United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Pine Ridge, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault by Striking, Beating, and Wounding was sentenced on February 4, 2014, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy.

Alexander Winter, age 27, was sentenced to 1 year in custody, 1 year of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Winter was indicted for repeatedly punching a woman in the chest and face during an argument in March of 2013 at Pine Ridge.  This assault resulted in contusions, bruises, a bloody nose, a black eye, and a nasal fracture to the victim.

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 Eric Kelderman prosecuted the case.
