SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - An inmate at the South Dakota state prison has been sentenced for throwing boiling water onto two correctional officers.

The state attorney general’s office says 25-year-old Wade Myers Standing Bear Jr. was sentenced on Monday for simple assault against a law enforcement officer.

Standing Bear already was serving a 25-year sentence with 10 years suspended for a burglary charge from 2014.

The Argus Leader reports the assault took place in April 2017. For the assault charge, Standing Bear received another 25-year sentence with 10 years suspended, which will run consecutive to his burglary sentence.
