For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Montana


BILLINGS—A Lame Deer man who admitted hitting and kicking an elderly woman was sentenced today to 37 months in prison and three years of supervised release, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said.

Jonathan Mark Limpy, 25, pleaded guilty to assault resulting in serious bodily injury in April.

U.S. District Judge Susan Watters presided.

The prosecution said in court records that the assault happened at a Busby residence on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation on Sept. 7, 2018. Limpy had been out drinking with friends and relatives during the day. That night, he argued with a woman and then assaulted another woman, who was elderly, by hitting her in the head and kicking her after she fell to the ground. The victim was transported to Billings Clinic where she ultimately had surgery.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Bryan Dake prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the BIA.
