SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A South Dakota man has been sentenced to six years in prison on an assault charge.

Twenty-three-year-old Isiah Mesteth, of Eagle Butte, pleaded guilty in February on a federal charge of assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

Authorities say the assault happened in October 2011. Mesteth allegedly hit and kicked the victim in the face several times, causing bleeding, bruising and swelling to her face and arms.

U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange ordered Mesteth to serve two years of supervised release when he completes his prison sentence.
