Macy Man Convicted of Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury

Acting United States Attorney Jan Sharp announced that Taylor Grant, 34, of Macy, Nebraska, was found guilty on March 31, 2021, following a three-day jury trial in federal court in Omaha for Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury. The Honorable Robert F. Rossiter, Jr., scheduled Grant’s sentencing for June 25, 2021, at 2:30 p.m. Grant faces up to ten years in prison.

In June 2020, an officer with the Omaha Nation Law Enforcement Services responding to a report of an assault located the victim walking in the road in Macy. The victim was nearly unrecognizable due to facial swelling and the severity of her injuries. She was taken to the hospital where she eventually received surgery to repair a broken jaw. The victim reported that she had been assaulted by Taylor Grant during the previous night and that he would not let her leave to get help. Police were unable to locate Grant for approximately one month. When taken into custody, Grant told an FBI agent that he had not assaulted the victim but had seen her injuries and believed he would be blamed so he went to Sioux City and stayed in a motel.

This case was investigated by the Omaha Nation Law Enforcement Services and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
