Timber Lake Man Sentenced For Assault By Striking, Beating And Wounding And Simple Assault

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Timber Lake, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault by Striking, Beating and Wounding, and Simple Assault was sentenced on October 29, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Vincent Archambeault, age 25, was sentenced to18 months in custody, 1 year of supervised release, and a $35 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Archambeault’s conviction was the result of a June 2013 incident in Timber Lake, when Archambeault had a verbal argument with the two victims that escalated into a physical fight.  During the fight, Archambeault bit the two victims.  One victim had the end of his finger bitten off and the second victim sustained a bite wound on her arm.

The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division conducted the investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson.

Archambeault was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to begin serving his sentence.
