A federal judge in Bismarck sentenced 42-year-old Samuel Bryce Silk Jr., of Cannonball, Monday to 43 months in prison.

He pleaded guilty in September to domestic assault by a habitual offender. Silk has at least two prior domestic violence convictions in tribal court.

Federal prosecutors said Silk assaulted a woman in January. She suffered a broken jaw and extensive bruising to her leg.
