Horsechief gets jail time for assault

During Thayer County District Court on April 3, Skylar Horsechief was set for sentencing on an attempted domestic assault charge. This is a class III felony. After entering a plea agreement his charges were changed.

According to court documents, Horsechief has been convicted  of similar charges of domestic assault on Aug. 27, 2012, and again on Oct. 28, 2013.

Due to his prior charges similar to this, and because he was unsuccessful on probation, District Judge Vicky Johnson sentenced him to not less than three years and not more than four years in jail. He received credit for 143 days already served.

John Coyle also appeared in District Court last Thursday.
