A 23-year-old Mobridge man who assaulted another man with a baseball bat has been sent to state prison.

Tyrall Cadotte Sr. pleaded guilty to aggravated assault and was sentenced to 10 years in prison with two years suspended.

Walworth County State’s Attorney Grant Walker says the attack came in an ongoing family feud between Cadotte and his family and the victim’s family.

Walker says Cadotte caused serious injury when he use a bat to assault the victim in Mobridge last summer.

Federal charges also have been filed against Cadotte for a related incident on an Indian reservation.
