Fort Hall Man Charged With Assault Resulting In Serious Bodily Injury

POCATELLO – U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced today that Dulton E. Johnson, 23, of Fort Hall, Idaho, pleaded not guilty today to the indictment charging him with assault resulting in serious bodily injury. Johnson was indicted by a federal grand jury in Pocatello on September 10, 2013. Johnson appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Ronald E. Bush at the federal courthouse in Pocatello. Trial is set for March 10, 2014, before U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill.

The indictment alleges that Johnson intentionally assaulted another person, which resulted in serious bodily injury, including multiple broken bones.

The charge of assault resulting in serious bodily injury is punishable by up to ten years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, and up to three years of supervised release.

The case was investigated by the Fort Hall Police Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

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.
