GREAT FALLS — A Box Elder man admitted today to assaulting a woman at his residence on the Rocky Boy’s Indian Reservation in 2021, U.S. Attorney Jesse Laslovich said.

Gabriel Evan Jordan, 26, pleaded guilty to a superseding information charging him with assault resulting in serious bodily injury. Gabriel faces a maximum of 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and three years of supervised release.

Chief U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris presided. The court will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors. Sentencing was set for May 30. Jordan was detained pending further proceedings.

The government alleged in court documents that on Nov. 16, 2021, the victim, identified as Jane Doe, visited Jordan at his residence. Jordan held Jane Doe down and assaulted her, which resulted in serious bodily injury.

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Jennifer S. Clark and Stephanie D. Robles are prosecuting the case. The FBI, Rocky Boy’s Police Department, Hill County Sheriff’s Office and Chippewa Cree Law Enforcement Services conducted the investigation.
