SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A South Dakota man has been sentenced to seven years in prison on an assault charge.
Rigoberto Ortiz, of Mission, pleaded guilty in May to assault with a dangerous weapon. He was also charged with first degree burglary, use of firearm during a crime of violence, and possession with intent to distribute a controlled substance.
Authorities say the incident happened in December 2013. The 45-year-old Ortiz allegedly fired two shots into the door of a residence before forcing the door open. Authorities say he held a gun to one victim's neck and another victim's forehead.
