GREAT FALLS—A judge on Wednesday sentenced a Box Elder man to eight months in prison and three years of supervised release in the assault of his domestic partner on the Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said.
Larry Ray Denny, Jr., 46, pleaded guilty in January to domestic assault by habitual offender.
U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris presided.
The assault occurred on Oct. 15, 2017, the prosecution said in court records. The victim told law enforcement that Denny had hit her. The victim had swelling on an eye, blood on her forehead and red marks on her neck. Denny had two prior domestic assault convictions.
Assistant U.S. Attorneys Cassady Adams and Ryan Weldon prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the FBI and Chippewa Cree Law Enforcement.
