Wanblee Man Sentenced For Assault
United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Wanblee, South Dakota, man charged with two counts of Simple Assault pled guilty to the charges and was sentenced on July 8, 2014, by U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno.
Lionel Between Lodges, age 26, was sentenced to 12 months of probation and a $20 assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place in Eagle Butte on March 9, 2010, when Between Lodges unlawfully assaulted a male adult victim from Wanblee.
The investigation was conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson.
