Tohono O’odham Man to Serve a Combined Sentence of 39 Months of Imprisonment for Domestic Violence Assault
TUCSON, Ariz. – On May 2, 2016, Kyle Wesley Street, 29, of Sells, Ariz., a member of the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation, was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Jennifer G. Zipps to 27 months of imprisonment, consecutive to a tribal sentence of 12 months’ incarceration. Street had previously pleaded guilty to assault of an intimate partner by attempted strangulation.
On Oct. 17, 2014, Tohono O’odham police officers responded to a 911 call about a domestic incident involving attempted strangulation where victim lost consciousness during the assault. Citing prior instances of domestic violence by Street upon the victim, the need to protect the public and the victim from further acts of domestic violence, and noting that the defendant had served 12 months of tribal custody for the offense, the court sentenced Street to 27 months in prison with a term of supervised release to follow. The total tribal and federal sentence for the offense is 39 months of imprisonment. The victim is also a member of the Tohono O’odham Indian Nation.
The investigation in this case was conducted by the Tohono O’odham Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. The prosecution was handled by Raquel Arellano, Assistant U.S. Attorney, District of Arizona, Tucson.
