SISSETON, S.D.— A 28-year-old Sisseton man will spend nine months in federal prison for assaulting a nurse practitioner at the town's Indian health care facility.
Richard Reuben Simon was indicted last December and had pleaded guilty in April to the incident which occurred August 16, 2021.
The victim, who wasn't named, was doing her official duties when the assault occurred.
Simon was undergoing an exam when he began making inappropriate comments to the nurse practitioner and then assaulted her.
The FBI investigated the case. Simon was immediately taken into custody after his sentencing late last month.
