On April 8, 2013, Lizzie Freemont, age 38, of South Sioux City, Nebraska, was convicted of assault by striking, beating, or wounding, in violation of Title 18, United States Code, Section 113(a)(4). Freemont was sentenced by Chief United States District Judge Laurie Smith Camp to a term of probation of three years.

On June 8, 2012, Freemont was at her husband’s residence on the Omaha Indian Reservation. When Freemont began to leave the residence, her husband attempted to prevent her from leaving and an altercation ensued. During the altercation, Freemont went into the kitchen and grabbed a knife. She then began to swing the knife around and eventually struck her husband in the back with the knife, but did not cause any serious bodily injuries.

This case was investigated by the FBI.
