Wyoming Man Charged With Sexual Abuse Of A Minor

U.S. Attorney for the District of Wyoming Christopher A. Crofts announced today that on June 3, 2015, 26 year old Carlino Jonas Goggles made his initial appearance on an Indictment charging him with one count of Sexual Abuse of a Minor, in violation of 18 U.S.C. §§ 2243(a) and 1153. Goggles faces potential penalties of up to fifteen years imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, a special assessment of $100 and supervised release for not less than 5 years nor more than life. Goggles’ case has been assigned to U.S. District Judge Scott Skavdahl for further proceedings.

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.

The case is being investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.
