Wyoming Man Indicted for Assaulting a Federal Officer

April 05, 2013

United States Attorney Christopher A. Crofts announced today that Corey James Hill, a 19 year old Eastern Shoshone tribal member of the Wind River Indian Reservation, appeared in Federal Court after having been indicted in a one count Indictment charging him with assaulting and resisting a federal officer. The charge carries a maximum penalty of twenty years imprisonment and a fine of not more than $250,000.00. This case is being investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

An indictment is only an accusation. In every criminal case, the accused is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty, and the government always has the burden of proving guilt at trial beyond a reasonable doubt.
