Pennsylvania Man Sentenced for Assault

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Greensburg, Pennsylvania, man charged with Assault by Striking, Beating, and Wounding pled guilty and was sentenced on June 1, 2017, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.

Marwan Sadekni, age 67, was sentenced to a $5,000 fine and $25 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Sadekni also needs to report this judgment to his current employer and the medical board.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on February 25, 2015, when Sadekni, who worked as a doctor for several weeks at the Rosebud Indian Health Service Hospital in Rosebud, South Dakota, became upset with the victim, a nurse at the facility. He began swearing at the victim, pounded on the desk and then slammed his hand down, over the victim’s hand. The victim pushed Sadekni away with her elbow and ran out of the office.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley.
