MITCHELL, S.D. (AP) — A Minnesota man has been sentenced to serve 10 years in the South Dakota State Penitentiary for assaulting a Mitchell woman with a pair of scissors in 2016.
Fifty-year-old Eustace Miles of Moorhead, Minnesota, pleaded guilty to aggravated assault for punching the woman, hitting her with an extension cord and belt, and stabbing a pair of scissors into her ear, puncturing her eardrum.
The Daily Republic reports that in addition to the prison time, Miles must pay nearly $5,200 in fines, court fees and restitution, along with some future medical and counseling expenses.
