GREAT FALLS — A man who admitted assaulting a woman, causing serious injuries, on the Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation, was sentenced Wednesday to 21 months in prison and to three years of supervised release, Acting U.S. Attorney Leif M. Johnson said.

Kelcey James Morsette, 31, pleaded guilty on Feb. 24 to assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

Chief U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris presided. Morris also ordered $941 in restitution.

The government alleged in court documents that on Nov. 14, 2019, Morsette was highly intoxicated and belligerent. Morsette argued with the victim, identified as Jane Doe, before becoming angry and attacking her. Doe sustained serious injuries from the assault and was hospitalized. The assault occurred on the Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Jared C. Cobell prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the FBI and Rocky Boy’s Police Department Criminal Investigations.
