For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Wisconsin man charged with Assault by Striking, Beating, and Wounding pled guilty to and was sentenced on February 12, 2015, by U.S. District Judge Mark Moreno.

Craig Maskil, age 58, was sentenced to 12 months of supervised probation, and $25 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on July 11, 2014, when Maskil was working as a doctor at the Rosebud Indian Health Service Hospital on the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation.  Maskil had a disagreement with another doctor at work, and he hit the victim in the head with his fists.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services, and the Todd County Sheriff’s Office.

The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher.
