Wyoming Woman Charged with Two Counts of Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury

June 03, 2013

U.S. Attorney for the District of Wyoming Christopher A. Crofts announced that on May 23, 2013, Cecelia Gayle Shakespeare, aka Cecelia Gayle Ferris, a 28-year-old Northern Arapaho Tribal Member, was charged in an indictment with two counts of assault resulting in serious bodily injury in violation of 18 U.S.C. ยงยง 113(a)(6) and 1153. The charges against Ms. Shakespeare stem from an incident that occurred on February 8, 2012 on the Wind River Indian Reservation. This case is being investigated by 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.
