Marty Man Sentenced for Assault with a Dangerous Weapon

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Marty, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon was sentenced on November 25, 2019, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

A’Shae Primeaux, age 21, was sentenced to 24 months in federal prison, 3 years of supervised release, restitution to the State of South Dakota Medicaid Program in the amount of $937.62, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Primeaux was indicted by a federal grand jury on January 8, 2019.  He pled guilty on September 5, 2019.

The conviction stemmed from an incident on December 15, 2018, when Primeaux, who was very intoxicated at the time, entered a home without permission.  While inside, he unlawfully assaulted two ladies who were visiting.  He hit them with a shovel, striking both of them.  One victim received seven stitches to her forehead, and the other victim required sutures to her scalp.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper prosecuted the case.

Primeaux was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
