Winner Man Sentenced On Assault And Firearm Charges

U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Winner man convicted of one count of Assault With a Dangerous Weapon and one count of Brandishing a Firearm During, in Relation to, or in Furtherance of a Crime of Violence or Drug Trafficking Crime was sentenced on January 4, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann. Anthony Brown Otter, age 25, was sentenced to 125 months in custody, 3 years of supervised release, and a $200 special assessment.

Brown Otter was indicted by a federal grand jury in June 2012. He pled guilty to two counts of a superseding indictment in September 2012.

The conviction stems from an incident in December 2011 when Brown Otter and another kicked an individual a combined total of approximately 20 times with shod feet. At the time of the incident, Brown Otter had a handgun in his possession.

This case was investigated by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.

Brown Otter was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
