Man Sentenced to 48 Months in Prison for Assault

United States Attorney James L. Santelle announced that Scott C. Rettler, (age: 45) of Neopit, WI located on the Menominee Indian Reservation, was sentenced on April 20, 2015, to 48 months of imprisonment, followed by a three year term of supervised release. The sentence was the result of a guilty plea by Rettler on January 26, 2015, to a federal information charging him with assaulting his girlfriend, which resulted in substantial bodily injury to the victim.

The investigation revealed that on October 14, 2014, Rettler assaulted his girlfriend, with a hammer at a residence on the Menominee Indian Reservation.

This case was investigated by the Menominee Tribal Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Benjamin L. Whittemore.
