PITTSBURGH, Pa. - A resident of Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania, has been indicted by a federal grand jury in Pittsburgh on assault and interstate domestic violence charges, United States Attorney Eric G. Olshan announced today.

According to the Indictment, on or about October 11, 2022, on a cruise ship excursion departing from Orlando, Florida, Owens strangled, assaulted, and wounded his intimate and dating partner, also a resident of Western Pennsylvania.

The law provides for a maximum total sentence of up to 10 years in prison, a fine of up to $250,000, or both. Under the federal Sentencing Guidelines, the actual sentence imposed would be based upon the seriousness of the offenses and the prior criminal history, if any, of the defendant.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducted the investigation leading to the Indictment.

An indictment is an accusation. A defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
