Mission Man Sentenced For Assault Resulting In Serious Bodily Injury

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury was sentenced on May 13, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Reno Roubideaux, age 40, was sentenced to 84 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Roubideaux was indicted for Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury by a federal grand jury on August 21, 2013.  He pled guilty on March 10, 2014.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place on July 1, 2013, in Todd County, when Roubideaux assaulted a man while he was asleep.  Roubideaux hit the victim with his fists, while others also assaulted him with their fists and a cane.  As a result of the assault, the victim suffered a large laceration to his scalp that required staples to repair.
This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers prosecuted the case.
Roubideaux was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
