February 21, 2013

United States Attorney Christopher A. Crofts announced today that on February 20, 2013, Russell Hill, a 19-year-old enrolled Eastern Shoshone from the Wind River Indian Reservation, appeared in Federal District Court for sentencing before United States District Judge Scott W. Skavdahl on a single count of assault resulting in serious bodily injury. Hill received 29 months of imprisonment, to be followed by three years of supervised release and was ordered to pay a $100.00 special assessment and restitution in the amount of $12,363.25. The charge stemmed from a stabbing which occurred on June 10, 2012, on the Wind River Indian Reservation. The case was investigated by the Fremont County Sheriff’s Office, the Wind River Police Department, the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
