LOWER BRULE — A Lower Brule man was sentenced Monday for assault and failure to register as a sex offender.
Glen Eagle Thunder, 38, was sentenced to 17 months in prison and five months of supervised release for failure to register, and one month for assault. The sentences will be served concurrently.
Eagle Thunder was on supervised release when he committed the crimes, and was sentenced to an additional 11 months in custody to be served concurrently. He was also ordered to pay $110 to the Victim Assistance Fund.
The charges stem from an incident June 22, when Eagle Thunder consumed alcohol and assaulted a family member. He was released on bond and absconded, failing to update his sex offender registration as required. He pled guilty to the charges Oct. 10.
Eagle Thunder was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
