Wyoming Man Charged with Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury

June 07, 2013

United States Attorney Christopher A. Crofts announced today that Lee Michael Spoonhunter, an enrolled Northern Arapaho Tribal member, appeared in federal court on June 6, 2013, for an arraignment. Mr. Spoonhunter appeared with counsel and pled not guilty to the indictment charging assault resulting in serious bodily injury, in violation 18 U.S.C. §§113(a)(6) & 1153. Mr. Spoonhunter’s trial will be held on August 12, 2013, in Cheyenne, Wyoming before Chief United States District Court Judge Nancy Freudenthal. This case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. 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.
