Walthill Man Sentenced for Two Counts of Assault

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced that Senior United States District Court Judge Joseph F. Bataillon sentenced Verlyn Grant, age 40, of Winnebago, Nebraska for his conviction on two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon. Grant was sentenced to 57 months of imprisonment to be followed by three years of supervised release.

In the early morning hours of February 20, 2014, Grant was drinking at his residence on the Omaha Indian Reservation with his girlfriend and another woman when Grant became angry with his girlfriend. Grant threw his girlfriend to the ground and began punching and kicking her with his steel-toed boots. The other woman attempted to stop the assault by getting on top of Grant’s girlfriend as she lay on the floor. Grant continued kicking and eventually kicked the other woman as well. Both women sustained bodily injuries as a result of the assault.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
