Lower Brule Man Sentenced For Assault

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Lower Brule, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault by Striking, Beating and Wounding was sentenced on October 22, 2014, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Colin Colombe, age 40, was sentenced to 2 years of probation, 90 days of jail time, and a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Colombe was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 21, 2013.  He pled guilty on August 12, 2014.
The conviction stems from an incident in Lower Brule on June 25, 2013, when Colombe got in an altercation with an adult male.  As a result of the altercation, the victim suffered injuries to his leg, as well as bruises, scrapes, and abrasions to his head and body.
This case was investigated by Bureau of Indian Affairs, Lower Brule Agency.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges prosecuted the case.
