Plummer Man Pleads Guilty to Strangulation

COEUR D’ALENE – Brian Quilly Lozon, 40, of Plummer, Idaho, pleaded guilty to strangulation of an intimate partner, U.S. Attorney Bart M. Davis announced today. Sentencing for Lozon is set for April 10, 2020, before U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill at the federal courthouse in Coeur d’Alene.

According to court records, Lozon and the victim were in multiple altercations in June 2019. During one of these altercations, Lozon used his hands to grab the victim by the throat and impeded her ability to breathe. Later, during the same altercation, Lozon used his forearm to again apply pressure to her throat. Eventually the victim was able to get away from Lozon and seek help.

Strangulation is punishable by up to 10 years in federal prison, a fine of up to $250,000, and a term of supervised release of up to three years.

This case was investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation and Coeur d’Alene Tribal Police Department.
