Keshena Man Indicted for Domestic Violence on the Menominee Indian Reservation
Matthew D. Krueger, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on June 16, 2020, a federal grand jury returned a one-count indictment against a man allegedly involved in domestic violence against a woman on the Menominee Indian Reservation. The indictment named Justin M. Moore (age: 35) of Keshena.
The indictment charged Moore with Domestic Assault by Strangulation in violation of 18 U.S.C. § 113(a)(8). If convicted, 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 indictment, on or about December 1, 2019, the defendant strangled a woman with whom he had a dating relationship on the Menominee Indian Reservation.
An indictment 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.
