Sentence reimposed for man who pled guilty to aggravated assault

A Belle Fourche man has had his sentence for aggravated assault reimposed after repeatedly breaking the terms of his probation.

Myles Dillon was originally given a suspended sentence following an incident at a Hulett motel in which he allegedly beat a victim to the point of severe trauma, including kicking him in the face and striking him with a chair.

The incident occurred on August 8, 2021, outside a room in a Hulett motel. Injuries to the victim were reported to include severe trauma to the head, face and neck and a potential collapsed lung. The victim was eventually life flighted.
