Wyoming Man Indicted For Violent Assault
United States Attorney Christopher A. Crofts announced today that Bryson Brown of the Wind River Indian Reservation appeared in Federal Court after having been indicted in a four (4) count Indictment charging him with one count of Assault with a Dangerous Weapon with Intent to do Bodily Harm, one count of Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury and two counts of using and carrying a firearm during and in relation to a crime of violence, in connection with a domestic violence incident. The charges carry a maximum penalty of ten years to life imprisonment and a fine of not more than $1,000,000.00. 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 at trial beyond a reasonable doubt.
