Lodge Pole man sentenced for assaulting girlfriend

GREAT FALLS—A Lodge Pole man convicted at trial for assaulting his girlfriend on the Fort Belknap Indian Reservation was sentenced today to 21 months in prison and three years of supervised release, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said.

A jury found Jeremy Davis Wing, 40, guilty of domestic abuse by habitual offender.

U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris presided.

During a trial in November, the prosecution presented evidence that Wing physically assaulted his girlfriend on May 19, 2018 and into the next day. Wing and the victim were living together at the time of the assault. The two were drinking alcohol with another man and woman when the couple argued. Wing became violent with the victim and also told the woman to beat up on the victim. Both Wing and the woman assaulted the victim. At trial, the parties stipulated that Wing had at least two prior separate domestic assault convictions.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jared Cobell and Kalah Paisley prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the FBI and Fort Belknap Law Enforcement Services.
