United States Attorney Christopher A. Crofts announced today that on January 2, 2013, Aaron David Mbonu, a 36-year-old Citizen of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, appeared in Federal District Court for sentencing before Chief Federal District Court Judge Nancy D. Freudenthal on a single count of sexual abuse of a minor. The charge carried a maximum penalty of 15 years’ imprisonment; a $250,000 fine; supervised release of not less than three years; restitution; and a $100 special assessment.
Mbonu received 51 months of imprisonment, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release, and was ordered to pay a $100 special assessment and a $400 fine. The charge stemmed from an offense that occurred between March 6, 2012 and March 16, 2012, on the Wind River Indian Reservation and involved a victim who was at least 12 years of age, but had not yet attained the age of 16 years, and was at least four years younger than the defendant. The case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
