BILLINGS- A Garryowen man was sentenced Wednesday in federal court in Billings for beating a woman in November 2017 on the Crow Reservation.

Tyrone Joe Oldelk, 30, will serve two years in federal prison, with three months credit for time served in tribal jail, and three years of supervised release.

Oldelk pleaded guilty in October to assault resulting in substantial bodily injury of a dating partner.

Prosecutors said Oldelk assaulted the victim on Nov. 18, 2017 in Garryowen after he got drunk and began arguing with the victim. He punched, kicked and choked the victim on various parts of her body over several hours before another person entered the room.

The beating stopped the next morning when the victim fought back and broke Oldelk’s nose.
