BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A North Dakota man has pleaded guilty to punching a woman in the face while he was wearing gloves with hardened plastic knuckles.

Twenty-nine-year-old Burdon Lester, of Cannonball, was indicted in federal court on a charge of assault with a dangerous weapon.

Authorities say Lester knocked the victim to the ground and then continued to kick her.

The charge carries a maximum penalty of 10 years in prison. Sentencing is scheduled for Aug. 12 in Bismarck.
