GREAT FALLS — A Wolf Point man suspected in the kidnapping and assault of a minor girl in Wolf Point, on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, was arraigned today, U.S. Attorney Jesse Laslovich said.

Dylan Troy Jackson, 21, pleaded not guilty to an indictment charging him with kidnapping of an individual under 18, assault resulting in serious bodily injury and assault resulting in substantial bodily injury to a minor. The indictment alleges that on Sept. 15, 2021 in Wolf Point, on the Fort Peck Indian Reservation, Jackson, along with codefendants, kidnapped and assaulted an individual identified as Jane Doe, who was under the age of 18. If convicted of the most serious crime, Jackson faces a mandatory minimum of 20 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and not less than five years to a lifetime of supervised release.

Chief U.S. District Judge Brian M. Morris presided. Jackson was detained pending further proceedings.

The FBI, Fort Peck Law Enforcement, Roosevelt County Sheriff’s Office and Wolf Point Police Department investigated the case.

An indictment is merely an accusation, and the defendant is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
