Menominee Man Indicted for Armed Assault on Menominee Indian Reservation

Matthew D. Krueger, United States Attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin, announced that on March 27, 2018, a federal grand jury returned a one-count indictment against a man allegedly involved in an armed assault on the Menominee Indian Reservation. Shawn T. Sanapaw (age: 34) of Keshena, was charged with Assault with a Dangerous Weapon in violation of Title 18 United States Code 113(a) (3). Sanapaw faces a maximum of 10 years’ imprisonment, up to a $250,000 fine, and up to 3 years of supervised release.

According to the indictment, on about September 29, 2017, Sanapaw assaulted another person with a firearm. The Menominee Tribal Police Department and Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated the case. It is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Andrew J. Maier.

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 guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
