The indictment charges Kaquatosh with Theft in violation of Title 18 United States Code §§ 661 and 1152.

The case was investigated by the Menominee Tribal Police Department, Menominee County Sheriff’s Office, New York Police Department, New York County District Attorney’s Office, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Andrew J. Maier.

 

An indictment is only a charge and 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.
