BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Authorities say a Cannonball man has been sentenced to 2 ½ years in prison for domestic assault by a habitual offender.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon says 26-year-old Ira Plenty Chief was sentenced on Monday. Plenty Chief pleaded guilty to the charge in March.

Authorities say Plenty Chief assaulted a woman in July 2012 by striking her in the face, which resulted in injuries to her eye and nose. Her injuries required medical attention.

Authorities say Plenty Chief had two prior convictions for domestic violence offenses in Standing Rock Tribal Court.
