Matthew D. Krueger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on May 12, 2020, his office filed a one-count federal criminal complaint against a man allegedly involved in domestic violence against a woman on the Menominee Indian Reservation. The complaint named Justin M. Moore (age: 34) of Keshena.

The complaint charged Moore with Domestic Assault by Strangulation in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 113(a)(8). If convicted of this offense, Moore faces a maximum of ten years in prison, up to a $250,000 fine, and up to three years of supervised release.

According to the complaint filed in United States District Court in Green Bay, on or about December 1, 2019, Moore strangled a woman with whom he had a dating relationship on the Menominee Indian Reservation. The offense allegedly occurred inside the woman’s house, and was witnessed by the woman’s child.

The Menominee Tribal Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the case, which will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Andrew J. Maier.

A criminal complaint is only a charge and not evidence of guilt. The defendant is presumed innocent and is entitled to a fair trial at which the government must prove his guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
