Kenneth Black Wolf, age 24, was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 12, 2013 for Maiming, Assault with a Dangerous Weapon, and Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury.

Black Wolf appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on April 19, 2013 and pled not guilty to the Indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 20 years of imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both; 3 years of supervised release and an additional 2 years of supervised release upon revocation. Restitution and a $100 special assessment may also be ordered.

The charges are merely accusations, and Black Wolf is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
