NEW TOWN, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a New Town man has been sentenced to three years and four months in prison on charges of burglary and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says 21-year-old Troy K. Yazzie Jr. pleaded guilty to the charges in 2010. He was sentenced on Friday.

Authorities say Yazzie went to a residence looking for a person in April 2010. Yazzie entered a residence without knocking and without permission and

found a man sleeping on the couch, woke him and pointed a pistol at him.

Authorities say the victim was not the man Yazzie intended to find.
