ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.—A Newcomb man convicted of assaulting a woman a year ago has been sentenced to 30 months in prison.

Prosecutors say 24-year-old Delsanto Ray Allen received the sentence Thursday at a hearing in federal court in Albuquerque.

Allen pleaded guilty in May to a charge of assault that resulted in serious injury.

He admitted to causing a woman to fall from a moving vehicle in San Juan County on Nov. 1, 2011.
