Lame Deer man admits assaulting woman
BILLINGS — A Lame Deer man on Jan. 28 admitted to assaulting a woman on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, Acting U.S. Attorney Leif Johnson said today.
Darrell Dean Fisher, 36, pleaded guilty to assault resulting in substantial bodily injury. Fisher faces a maximum five years in prison, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Timothy J. Cavan presided. Fisher was released pending further proceedings. A sentencing date has not yet been set.
In court documents filed in the case, the prosecution said that on Aug. 4, 2019, Fisher and the victim, identified as Jane Doe, returned to Ashland from a trip and argued. An altercation ensued and Fisher pushed the victim to the ground, injuring her.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Bryan Dake is prosecuting the case, which was investigated by the FBI.
