SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — A Parmelee woman has been sentenced to four months in federal prison for assaulting a baby.

Prosecutors say 22-year-old Charlee Spotted Tail started an altercation in a store parking lot last year with a woman who was holding a 6-month-old baby. Spotted Tail tried to strike the woman, but hit the baby in the head instead. She then hit the baby a second time before fleeing.

The Argus Leader says Spotted Tail was convicted of one count of assault.
