Moreno on December 6, 2012, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction of the kidnapping charge is any term of years up to life imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both. The maximum penalty upon conviction of the assault charge is 10 years' imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both. The charges are merely accusations, and Robertson is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
