WINNER — A Winner man was sentenced Friday to more than 10 years in prison for repeatedly kicking a man while in possession of a handgun.
Anthony Brown Otter, 25, was indicted by a federal grand jury in June. He pleaded guilty in September to one count of assault with a dangerous weapon and one count of brandishing a firearm during, in relation to, or in furtherance of a crime of violence.
Brown Otter was sentenced to 125 months in prison, three years of supervised release and a $200 special assessment.
The conviction stems from a December 2011 incident in which Brown Otter and another individual kicked another person a combined total of 20 times. Brown Otter had a handgun in his possession at the time of the incident.
This case was investigated by the Northern Plains Safe Trails Drug Enforcement Task Force. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.
Brown Otter was immediately remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
