A Nespelem man was sentenced to two years in federal prison Wednesday after he previously pleaded guilty to assault resulting in serious bodily harm.

Louis M. Clark, 28, of Nespelem, who is an enrolled member of the Confederated Tribes of the Colville Reservation, appeared Wednesday before U.S. District Court Judge Rosanna Malouf Peterson, who sentenced Clark to 24 months in prison.

According to court records, Clark traveled with his girlfriend to their shared home on the Colville Indian Reservation and began hitting her in the face with his fists and knee several times. During the assault, which took place in front of their minor children, the victim lost two teeth.

Clark has previous convictions for assault, according to a news release from the U.S. Attorney’s Office. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Richard Barker.
