Christopher Parish, age 41, London B. Beaudoin, age 19, and Leo Smith, age 20, from Houston, Texas, were arraigned on Jan. 18. The defendants are charged with bank theft. Their trial has been set for Mar. 11 before U.S. District Court Judge Alan B. Johnson in Cheyenne.
All three defendants were detained at the request of the government and remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals. If convicted, each defendant faces a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison, a $250,000 fine, and three years of supervised release. A federal district court judge will determine any sentence after considering the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors.
This crime is being investigated by the FBI and the case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Timothy J. Forwood.
An indictment merely contains allegations, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty.
