A Minnesota man was sentenced to 10 years in the South Dakota State Penitentiary for assaulting a Mitchell woman.

Eustace Miles, 50, Moorhead, Minnesota, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault in 2017 for punching the victim, hitting her with an extension cord and belt. The assault occurred in 2016. He also stabbed a pair of scissors into the victim's ear, puncturing her eardrum.

Miles must pay $5,161.97 in fines, court costs and restitution to the victim.

Judge Chris Giles ordered Miles to pay future medical expenses for the victim's anticipated surgery for her eardrum and for any future counseling over the next 18 months. Giles sentenced Miles to 15 years in prison with five years suspended.
