Adam Poor Bear, age 24, was indicted on December 10, 2013.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Mark A. Moreno on January 21, 2014, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 2 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, 1 year of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

On December 2, 2013, Poor Bear, having been charged with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon and Supervised Release Revocation, failed to appear for his sentencing hearing as ordered by the court.
