A Winnebago man has been sentenced to nearly seven years in federal prison for assaulting a woman about a year ago.
32-year-old Mark Decora was sentenced in federal court in Omaha for assault resulting in serious bodily injury.
Federal prosecutors say Winnebago police called to a senior apartment complex found a woman with significant facial injuries, which required surgery at Mercy Hospital in Sioux City, Iowa. Decora was the only other person in the apartment.
It is the third federal conviction of Decora; convicted of assault in 2003 and resisting a federal officer in 2005.
After serving his prison term, Decora will serve three years of supervised release.
