A Fort Washakie man was indicted in late July for abusive sexual contact with a minor, according to U.S. District Court.
Annin Damian Soldierwolf, 52, was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 22 on allegations of abusive sexual contact. The indictment alleged Soldierwolf knowingly engaged and attempted to engage in sexual contact with a minor.
Soldierwolf pleaded not guilty to the indictment on July 28 before U.S. Magistrate Kelly Rankin.
A jury trial is set for Sept. 20 in Casper before U.S. District Court Judge Scott Skavdahl. The maximum penalty is life in prison and/or a $250,000 fine.
The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and Assistant United States Attorney Kerry J. Jacobson is prosecuting the case.
Soldierwolf has not been found guilty of this crime, so he is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
