US v. Stanfill El, 12-30155

Conviction for assault under a federal statute that provided for a maximum prison sentence of six months and order to pay restitution in the amount of $3,468.03 are affirmed, where defendant's prosecution, even though it resulted in an order requiring him to make monetary payment in restitution, was still a prosecution for a petty offense, and was not a civil action, and therefore defendant had no right to a jury under either the Sixth or Seventh Amendments.
