Hitting woman with baseball bat sends Busby man to prison | USAO-MT

BILLINGS – A Busby man who admitted striking a woman with a baseball bat and his fists last year on the Northern Cheyenne Indian Reservation was sentenced today to three years and 10 months in prison and three years of supervised release, U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme said.

Chase Woodenlegs, 30, pleaded guilty in February to assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

U.S. District Judge Susan P. Watters presided.

In court records filed in the case, the prosecution said the assault happened on July 23, 2019 at a Busby residence. Woodenlegs hit the victim with his fists and a baseball bat. He also strangled the victim. After the assault, Woodenlegs fled the area. The victim was treated for multiple injuries.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Bryan Dake is prosecuting the case, which was investigated by the FBI.
