Jocelyn J. Chasing Hawk, age 30, was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 12, 2012. She appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on June 29, 2012, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 25 years' imprisonment on the burglary charge and 5 years' imprisonment on the larceny charge. Both charges include a $250,000 fine and a 3 year period of supervised release. The charges are merely accusations, and Chasing Hawk is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
