A Mission man has been sentenced to 10 1/2 years in prison for assaulting a federal officer.
Authorities say 34-year-old Roger Watts fought with a Rosebud Sioux officer who was trying to arrest him for allegedly possessing stolen property in January 2017. The officer suffered a knee injury.
A U.S. District Court jury convicted Watts late last year of assaulting, resisting and impeding a federal officer. U.S. Attorney Ron Parsons says Watts will be on supervised release for three years following his prison time.
