Man Sentenced for Assault Resulting in Serious Bodily Injury

U.S. Attorney’s Office October 24, 2013
  • District of Wyoming (307) 772-2124

U.S. Attorney Christopher A. Crofts announced that on October 21, 2013, Lee Spoonhunter, a 36-year-old Northern Arapaho man, was sentenced by Chief U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Freudenthal to three years of probation, with the first four months to be served on home confinement, a $100 special assessment, and a full restitution amount to be determined within 90 days. This sentence stems from Mr. Spoonhunter’s November 2012, conduct on the Wind River Indian Reservation—namely driving while under the influence of alcohol, during which time a traffic crash occurred and another person suffered serious bodily injury as a result of the crash.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
