Rigoberto Schmidt of Grand Island Indicted

United States Attorney Deborah R. Gilg announced the federal Grand Jury for the District of Nebraska has returned a five-count indictment against Rigoberto Schmidt, 22, of Grand Island. The Indictment charges Schmidt with four counts of selling a firearm to a felon resulting from two incidents in April, 2014, and two incidents in May, 2014. The fifth count charges Schmidt with the sale of a stolen firearm from an incident in May, 2014.

The maximum possible penalty for each charge if convicted is 10 years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, a 3 year term of supervised release and a $100 special assessment for each count.

Indictments are charging documents that contain one or more individual counts that are merely accusations, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.

This case was investigated by the Central Nebraska Drug and Safe Streets Task Force.
