BISMARCK, North Dakota — A woman accused of biting a Bureau of Indian Affairs officer on the arm has been sentenced to 10 months in prison.

Jesse Grant, of Fort Yates, pleaded guilty in March to assaulting a federal officer. Authorities say the assault happened in August 2014 on the Standing Rock Indian Reservation.

Grant had been in custody since March when her release was revoked for failing to report for supervision.

Grant's court-appointed lawyer had asked for a sentence of 15 months in prison.
