St. Francis Man Sentenced For Simple Assault

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a St. Francis, South Dakota, man charged with Simple Assault pled guilty to and was sentenced on June 27, 2014, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.
Jeremy Iron, age 29, was sentenced to 2 years of probation, and $10 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on February 16, 2014, when Iron returned home to the residence that he shared with the victim and her children.  There was an argument and Iron knocked the phone out of the victims hand and assaulted her.

The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher. 

Iron was released from custody.
