Rapid City Journal reports:

A jury of five officers found an Ellsworth Air Force Base airman accused of attempted murder guilty of aggravated assault Friday.

Senior Airman Vinicus "Vinnie" Santana received a dishonorable discharge, demotion to airman basic and was sentenced to three years in prison at the conclusion of a four-day court martial. He also forfeits all pay and allowances.

Pennington County dropped attempted murder charges against Santana and turned him over to the Air Force for prosecution.

On the opening day of the trial, Santana pleaded guilty to the reckless endangerment charge and possession of steroids.
