PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A 19-year-old man who admitted assaulting a man on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation has been sentenced to more than two years in prison.

U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange has ordered Dezmond Two Hearts, of Eagle Butte, to spend 30 months in prison, followed by two years of supervised release. Two Hearts pleaded guilty in August to assault with a dangerous weapon and aiding and abetting.

The office of U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says that on March 6, Two Hearts and his co-defendant took turns assaulting the man after he told them he did not have money to lend them. Authorities say Two Hearts kicked and stomped the victim in the face and head area with shod feet.

Two Hearts is under the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
