BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A Belcourt man has pleaded guilty in federal court to a charge of assaulting and resisting a federal officer.

U.S. Attorney Timothy Q. Purdon says 18-year-old Cameron J. Gooden is scheduled to be sentenced Oct. 18 in federal court in Bismarck. He faces a maximum penalty of 20 years in federal prison and a $250,000 fine.

Purdon says an officer at the Turtle Mountain Correctional Facility was trying to remove Gooden from a shower area in December to return him to his cell when Gooden slammed a metal door on the officer. The officer sustained a rib fracture.
