Keshena Man Charged with Assault

Gregory J. Haanstad, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on June 28, 2016, a federal grand jury returned an indictment against Curtis M. Boivin (age: 48) of Keshena, Wisconsin, charging him with assault with a dangerous weapon in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 113(a)(3); and assault resulting in serious bodily injury in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 113(a)(6).  If convicted of either charge, Boivin faces a maximum of 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervised release.

The indictment alleges that on January 23, 2016, Boivin assaulted an individual on the Menominee Indian Reservation by striking him in the head and arm with a shovel, causing serious bodily injury.

Boivin is scheduled to appear on July 7, 2016, at 1:30 p.m. before the Honorable James Sickel, Magistrate Court Judge. A trial date will be set at that time. 

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Menominee Tribal Police Department and prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney William Roach.  

An indictment is only a charge and is not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
