An Eagle Butte man ordered to spend 25 years in state prison for shooting a Pierre police officer has had an additional 20 years of federal prison time added to his sentence.
Twenty-eight-year-old Jason Garreau was sentenced in federal court on Tuesday on a charge of assaulting a federal officer and a weapons count.
The charges stem from an eight-hour standoff at a Pierre mobile home on Oct. 31, 2013, in which Garreau exchanged gunfire with officers. A city police officer was injured, and Garreau later pleaded guilty in state court to attempted murder.
Garreau also pleaded guilty to the federal charges, and several other charges were dismissed, including some related to a shootout in Hyde County the day before the Pierre standoff. Garreau's cousin was killed in that shootout.
