Winnebago Man Sentenced For Assaulting A Federal Officer

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Nebraska

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Duane Rouillard, age 27, of Winnebago, Nebraska, was sentenced for his conviction for assaulting a federal officer.  Senior United States District Court Judge Joseph F. Bataillon sentenced Rouillard to 24 months of imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release.

On May 11, 2015, an Officer with the BIA Office of Justice Services responded to a domestic disturbance call at Rouillard’s residence.  When the Officer arrived he found Rouillard’s mother and cousin attempting to restrain Rouillard to prevent him from taking any further violent actions.  When the officer attempted to handcuff  Rouillard, Rouillard spat on the Officer’s face and neck.  This was the fifth time Rouillard has been convicted of assaulting a law enforcement officer.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
