ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) - A Taos Pueblo man has been sentenced to more than two years in federal prison for assault.

Prosecutors say 59-year-old Phillip Martinez Jr. received a 27-month sentence Tuesday followed by three years of supervised release.

Martinez was arrested in October 2013 on an indictment charging him with assault with a dangerous weapon.

According to the indictment, Martinez assaulted another Taos Pueblo man with a stick in the Pueblo of Taos on April 29, 2013.

Martinez pleaded guilty in the case on June 9 and acknowledged that the victim suffered serious bodily injury as a result of the assault.
