ND man sentenced to 55 months on two federal charges

BISMARCK — A North Dakota man has been sentenced to more than four years in prison on burglary and weapons charges.

Troy Yazzie Jr. is accused of entering a home in New Town in April 2010 without permission, waking up a man and pointing a pistol at his head to scare him.

Yazzie pleaded guilty earlier to burglary and brandishing a firearm during a crime of violence.

U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland sentenced Yazzie to 55 months in prison, with credit for time already served.
