Riverton man to prison for attack on wife

Apr 2, 2017 - From staff and wire reports

Mitchell Wayne Mosqueda of Riverton was sentenced to 15 months of imprisonment on Monday for assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm.

In October, Mosqueda attacked his wife with a baseball bat and a piece of wood, causing "substantial bodily injury."

The U.S. had also originally charged him with breaking windows at St. Stephen's Indian School, but dropped that charge as part of a plea deal.

After serving his prison sentence, the 24-year-old will have three years of supervised release, and he is also ordered to pay $5,298.12 in restitution.
