Federal Judges Sentence Two Men
Federal judges have sentenced two men for crimes including involuntary manslaughter and illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien.
On Thursday, U.S. District Court Judge Scott Skavdahl sentenced Dalton Enos, 23, of Fort Washakie on one count of involuntary manslaughter and one count of assault resulting in serious bodily injury. He was driving a vehicle on March 16 while intoxicated and caused the death of Arlyn Willow and caused serious injuries to a child on the Wind River Indian Reservation.
Skavdahl sentenced Enos to three years, 10 months imprisonment, ordered him to pay restitution, and recommended him for residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. After release from custody, he will be placed on three years of supervised probation. Enos also was ordered to attend monthly meetings of the Mothers Against Drunk Driver’s victim impact panel, plus other terms and conditions.
On Friday, Chief U.S. District Court Judge Nancy Freudenthal sentenced Oscar Rodriguez-Melchor of Mexico for illegal re-entry of a previously deported alien into the United States. Rodriguez-Melchor was arrested in Rock Springs in May. Freudenthal sentenced him to one year and one day imprisonment, with deportation to begin while he is incarcerated.
