Jury convicts Timmons for aggravated assault

David Timmons

David Timmons of Pierre was sentenced to 15 years in the South Dakota State Penitentiary on April 26, about a month and a half after a Hughes County jury returned a verdict finding Timmons, 36, guilty of aggravated assault and domestic violence.

According to the release from Jessica LaMie, Hughes County State’s Attorney, and the Office of the Attorney General, this is a Class 3 felony.

Timmons, a registered sex offender, also admitted to a Part II Information offered by the prosecution stemming from his 2015 plea of “no contest” to attempted fourth-degree rape. This served to enhance the current guilty verdict to a Class 2 felony, punishable by up to 25 years imprisonment in the state penitentiary and $50,000 in fines.
