Nebraska Man Sentenced For Assault

US Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Valentine, Nebraska, man convicted of Assaulting a Federal Officer was sentenced on January 17, 2013, by US District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Blake Bordeaux, age 22, was sentenced to 148 days in custody with credit for time served and $25 to the Victim Assistance Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on August 27, 2011, when Bordeaux assaulted a federal officer.

The investigation was conducted by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. Assistant United States Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers prosecuted the case.

Bordeaux was immediately turned over to the custody of the US Marshal.
