A federal judge sentenced a member of the Coeur d’Alene Indian Tribe to more than three years in federal prison Monday after he pleaded guilty to attacking his girlfriend on the Colville Indian Reservation.
U.S. District Court Judge Rosanna Malouf Peterson sentenced Roberto L. Doran, 40, to 3 1/3 years in prison after Doran pleaded guilty in August to an assault resulting in serious bodily injury to his girlfriend.
During the assault, the victim fled from the residence into the street where she received assistance from a neighbor. Doran has several prior convictions for domestic violence, according to a news release.
The case was investigated by the local office of the FBI and the Tribal Law Enforcement Department of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation.
