Man gets 1 year for assaulting officer on reservation


ABERDEEN, S.D. - A South Dakota man has been sentenced to one year in prison after admitting that he assaulted a federal officer in January in a community on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

U.S. District Judge Charles Kornmann has sentenced 23-year-old Dylan Demery to a year and a day in custody. Demery, of Kenel, pleaded guilty in June to assaulting, resisting and impeding a federal officer.

Federal authorities say the assault happened Jan. 1, when an officer with the Bureau of Indian Affairs was responding to a report of a drunk driver in Kenel, on the reservation that straddles the Dakotas.
