PIERRE, South Dakota — A McLaughlin man convicted of assaulting a federal officer has been sentenced to nearly two years in prison.

Twenty-two-year-old Jorge Trujillo was accused of reaching for a knife in the waistband of his pants last August when a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer told him to raise his hands above his head. The officer had responded to a report of Trujillo make threats.

Trujillo pleaded guilty in January to a charge of assaulting, resisting and impeding a federal officer. Acting U.S. Attorney Randolph Seiler says Trujillo was recently sentenced to 21 months in custody, to be followed by two years of supervised release.
