Santee man sentenced in baseball bat assault

A Santee Sioux tribal member will spend the next two years behind bars after a baseball bat attack.

This week, 52-year-old Kevin Campbell of Santee was sentenced to 24 months in prison.

After his release, Campbell will serve a three-year term of supervised release.

Officials say in September of 2019, Campbell approached the victim on the powwow grounds of the Santee Sioux Reservation and hit the victim with a baseball bat, fracturing the victim's arm.

The victim was taken to a hospital in Yankton for treatment.
