MINOT (AP) — A Belcourt man has been sentenced to six years and five months in federal prison for a stabbing on the Turtle Mountain Reservation.
U.S. Attorney Timothy Purdon said 30-year-old Kenneth N. Allery Jr. was sentenced on Tuesday. Allery pleaded guilty to a charge of assault resulting in serious bodily in May. Allery also was ordered to pay more than $35,200 in restitution.
Authorities say Allery stabbed the victim in the chest with a knife in May 2011. The victim sought medical attention and underwent surgery for his injury.
