Wyoming Man Charged with Assault of a Spouse by Strangling

U.S. Attorney for the District of Wyoming Christopher A. Crofts announced that on May 21, 2014, Jameson Kaulaity, a 28-year-old Northern Arapaho Tribal member, was charged in an indictment with one count of assault of a spouse by strangling in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 113(a)(8) and 1153. The charge against Mr. Kaulaity stemmed from an incident that occurred on January 29, 2014 on the Wind River Indian Reservation. Mr. Kaulaity is facing a potential ten (10) year term of imprisonment, and could be ordered to pay restitution, a fine, and special assessment. An indictment is only an accusation. In every criminal case, the accused is presumed to be innocent until proven guilty, and the government always has the burden of proving guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
