A young Winnebago man has been sentenced to two years in federal prison for assaulting a federal officer.
U.S. Attorney Deborah Gilg reports Senior U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Bataillon sentenced 27-year-old Duane Rouillard to two years in prison and three years of supervised release.
Gilg says Rouillard resisted arrested during a domestic disturbance call last May. It was the fifth time Rouillard had assaulted a law enforcement officer.
Federal prosecutors say a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer responded to a domestic disturbance call at Rouillard’s resident on May 11th of 2015. Rouillard’s mother and cousin were attempting to restrain Rouillard when the officer arrived. The officer attempted to place Rouillard in handcuffs and Rouillard spat in the officer’s face and on his neck.
