Winnebago Man Sentenced For Assault On A Federal Officer

United States District Court Judge Joseph F. Bataillon sentenced Milton James LaRose, age 26 of Winnebago, Nebraska, for his conviction of assaulting a federal officer.  LaRose was sentenced to time served (seven months) and was further ordered to serve 6 months at the Dismas Charities residential reentry center in Sioux City, Iowa. 

LaRose was encountered on the Winnebago Indian Reservation by a BIA officer on July 11, 2013.  The officer had been called due to a report of a disturbance.  When the officer attempted to arrest LaRose and place him in handcuffs, LaRose pulled away and punched the officer in the eye.  LaRose continued to struggle and resist arrest until the officer was able to gain control of him. 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
