An inmate who attacked a jailer in Mitchell has been sentenced to serve 20 years in prison.
23-year-old Jeremiah Hart pleaded guilty in July to aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer for a January attack on James Dietz, a corrections officer at the Davison County Jail. Dietz suffered broken bones in his face and jaw and was hospitalized as a result of the attack.
Hart on Tuesday was ordered to pay more than $32,000 in restitution.
Hart was arrested in September 2012 for his role in burning a stolen car in Mitchell. He was charged with intentional property damage and was sentenced Tuesday to two years in prison for that crime. He will serve the two sentences at the same time.
