RIVERTON, Wyo. — An enrolled member of the Northern Arapahoe Tribe has been sentenced for an assault and subsequent escape, and another tribal member in a separate case was charged with escape from custody.

In a statement released today, U.S. Attorney Christopher Crofts says 30-year-old Matthew Antelope was sentenced to four years, three months, in prison for escaping from the Community Alternatives institutional facility in Casper and a subsequent assault that happened on the Wind River Indian Reservation in February.

In a separate case, Louis Slone Yellowfox, whose age was not listed in the report, faces five years of prison and a fine of $250,000 for failing to return to the Casper alternatives center where he was lawfully confined at the direction of the Attorney General. His trial’s been set for later this year, in December.

Both cases are being handled by the federal court in Cheyenne because the men are members of the Northern Arapahoe Tribe of the Wind River Indian Reservation.
