Woman sentenced for assault on a Federal Officer; County man’s trial set in Reservation Sexual Abuse case

(Cheyenne, Wyo.) – Wind River Reservation resident Marion Joyce Kills Enemy, 24, has been sentenced by United States Magistrate Judge Teresa M. McKee to 4 months imprisonment, one year of supervised release, and was ordered to pay a $350.00 fine and a $25.00 special assessment. Ms. Kills Enemy previously pled guilty to the offense of assault on a federal officer. This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Bureau of Indian Affairs law enforcement.

Charles Daniel Shamblen of Fremont County appeared in federal court on April 22, 2014, and plead not guilty to four counts of Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Minor under the age of 12, and one count of Abusive Sexual Contact of Minor under the age of 12. Each charge carries a maximum term of life imprisonment and fine of $250,000.00. The charges against Shamblem stem from his action on the Wind River Indian Reservation. Trial has been set for June 16, 2014, in the United States District Court in Casper, Wyoming. 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.
