PIERRE, South Dakota — A South Dakota man accused of using metal crutches and wooden clubs to assault a victim has been sentenced.
U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange has sentenced 23-year-old Lawrence Mexican to 3 ½ years in prison. The Eagle Butte man earlier pleaded guilty to assault with a dangerous weapon.
Federal prosecutors say Mexican and two other people intentionally harmed the victim in July 2014 during an incident in Eagle Butte.
Mexican has been turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
