A man was sentenced Friday in federal court for strangling an intimate partner in 2021.
“Daniel Jumper strangled the victim and threatened to kill her,” said U.S. Attorney Clint Johnson. “Since taking on a significant increase in domestic violence cases in 2020, federal prosecutors in the Northern District of Oklahoma have proven they are fully capable and have the will to ensure perpetrators of family violence are held accountable for their crimes. I am proud of their pursuit of justice in these cases.”
Chief U.S. District Judge John F. Heil III sentenced Daniel Lee Jumper, 27, of Eucha, to 20 months in federal prison for assault of an intimate/dating partner by strangling and attempting to strangle in Indian Country. Following his term of imprisonment, he will serve three years on supervised release.
In a plea agreement, Jumper admitted that he threatened to kill his spouse after becoming angry with her on Dec. 6, 2021. He then threatened to “rip her head off,” grabbed the victim’s throat and strangled her.
According to court documents, Jumper also punched two individuals who tried to intervene. When he did so, he caused one of them to drop an 8-month-old child .
The FBI and the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office conducted the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney William Rubens prosecuted the case.
