Coeur d'Alene Tribal Man Charged with Aggravated Sexual Assault

COEUR D'ALENE - Jeremy J. Bohlman, 37, who lived on the Coeur d’Alene Indian Reservation, was arrested yesterday on charges of aggravated sexual assault, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced.  Bohlman was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 15, 2015.

The indictment alleges Bohlman, a tribal member, knowingly caused the victim to engage in a sex act by use of force against the victim.  It is further alleged that Bohlman was previously convicted of a sex offense. 

Aggravated sexual assault is punishable by up to life in prison, a $250,000 fine, and supervised release up to life. 

The case is being investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Coeur d’Alene Tribal Police.

An Indictment is a means of charging a person with criminal activity.  It is not evidence.  The person is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
