For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of Wyoming

United States Attorney Bob Murray announced today that ELVIN WAYNE MCCLAIN, 30, of Arapahoe, Wyoming, was charged with kidnapping, assault with a dangerous weapon with intent to do bodily harm and assault resulting in serious bodily injury. McClain appeared for an arraignment hearing on April 14, 2022, before Federal District Court Magistrate Judge Kelly H. Rankin and pleaded not guilty to the charges. A trial has been set for June 21, 2022.  

McClain faces up to life imprisonment, five years of supervised release, up to a $750,000 fine, and a $300 special assessment. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.

This crime is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Michael J. Elmore is prosecuting the case.

An indictment merely contains allegations, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
