U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Antelope man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Arson.

Laverne White Horse, age 21, was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 13, 2010, for Arson. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge John Simko on March 8, 2011, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 25 years of imprisonment. The charge is merely an accusation, and White Horse is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
