Albuquerque – A federal grand jury has returned an indictment charging a Bosque Farms man with assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

According to the indictment, on Sept. 22, 2023, Richard Jaramillo, 42, of Bosque Farms and an enrolled member of Pueblo of Isleta, assaulted John Doe and the assault resulted in serious bodily injury.

Yesterday, Jaramillo appeared in federal court for an initial appearance where the Court temporarily detained Jaramillo pending a detention hearing, which is scheduled for March 20, 2024. If convicted, Jaramillo faces a maximum of 10 years in federal prison. There is no parole in the federal system.

The charges are only allegations; the defendant is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt.
