September 3, 2018

POCATELLO, Idaho (AP) — A resident of the Fort Hall Indian Reservation was sentenced to almost five years in prison for assaulting a woman so severely she required surgery.

The Idaho State Journal reports a federal judge also ordered Jonathan Jacob Ish to serve three years of supervised release, after he leaves prison. Ish pleaded guilty on May 21.

According to court records, the female victim of the assault told police that in September 2016, she and Ish were at their home on the Fort Hall Indian Reservation when he became angry and began punching and kicking her.

At one point Ish kicked her in the head and broke her jaw. She was bleeding severely and later had surgery for a broken jaw, a nasal fracture and a fracture of the eye socket.
