BILLINGS – A Lame Deer man who admitted to assaulting a woman on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation, was sentenced today to 18 months in prison and to three years of supervised release, Acting U.S. Attorney Leif M. Johnson said.

Darrell Dean Fisher, 36, pleaded guilty on Jan. 28 to assault resulting in substantial bodily injury.

U.S. District Judge Susan P. Watters presided.

In court documents filed in the case, the government alleged 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 T. Dake prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the FBI.
