Trial Date Set For Man Accused Of Sexually Assaulting Woman At Alcova
A Colorado man will go to trial for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman at Alcova Lake, a judge said Tuesday.
The week-long trial of Levi Keller will begin May 4, Natrona County District Court Judge Daniel Forgey said during a scheduling conference.
If convicted, Keller faces between five and 50 years behind bars on each count.
Keller remains in custody on a $50,000 bond.
He was arrested in September by sheriff’s deputies after the alleged victim identified him as her assailant.
On Sept. 8, Keller and two friends drove from Colorado to stay at a cabin owned by one of the friends, according to court records.
The victim and her friends drove from Colorado a day later.
Keller and the victim were watching TV. He is accused of plying the victim with a combination of alcoholic beverages and energy drinks.
She had never been intoxicated before and never had sex before, according to court documents.
The victim passed out and woke up repeatedly and asked Keller to stop assaulting her.
She escaped and was picked up by two men driving along Wyoming Highway 220 who dropped her off at Sloan’s General Store.
These two good Samaritans were later located by the sheriff’s office.
