Eagle Butte Man Sentenced For Assaulting A Man In A Bar

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Bevan Ray Bordeaux, a 26-year-old man from Eagle Butte, South Dakota, pled guilty to two charges of Assault by Striking, Beating and Wounding and was sentenced on August 12, 2013, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Bordeaux was sentenced to one year of custody, $79.20 in restitution, and a $20 assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction arose from an incident on December 28, 2012, when the Defendant’s wife got into a verbal argument with the victim at an Eagle Butte bar.  The Defendant then approached the victim and joined in the argument, which escalated and resulted in Bordeaux striking the victim and knocking him to the floor.  Following the initial assault, Bordeaux unlawfully struck the victim a second time when he was on the floor of the bar.

The investigation was conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson prosecuted the case. 

Bordeaux was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to begin serving his sentence.
