Man sentenced for brutal assault on woman on Menominee reservation

The ruling handed down last week reversed an opinion from U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill, who said federal courts didn't have jurisdiction to enforce a ruling from the Coeur d'Alene Tribal Court against non-tribal members, Boise State Public Radio reported. The appellate court disagreed.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - A man formerly from Neopit was sentenced to 90 months in prison for a brutal assault on a the Menominee Indian Reservation last October.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office says 38-year-old Frank Sackatook III punched a woman and kicked her repeatedly in the head with steel-toed boots in an unprovoked attack on the side of a road on October 17, 2019.

Prosecutors say the victim suffered bleeding on the brain that required multiple surgeries and will be dealing with the effects of the injuries for a very long time.

Sackatook pleaded guilty to Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury in February.

At sentencing, U.S. Judge William Griesbach noted Sackatook has a history of violent crimes and ordered him to be supervised release for 3 years after prison.
