Crowheart man arraigned for illegal possession of firearms

Acting United States Attorney Nicholas Vassallo announced today that Temayne Thunder  43, of Crowheart, pled “not guilty” to a charge of being a felon in possession of a firearm at his arraignment hearing held on December 8, 2022, before United States Magistrate Judge Teresa McKee.

A trial has been set for February 13, 2023. 

If convicted, Thunder faces up to 15 years’ imprisonment with three years of supervised release, up to a $250,000 fine, and a $100 special assessment.


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 Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant United States Attorney Timothy W. Gist is prosecuting the case. 

An indictment merely contains allegations, and every defendant is presumed innocent unless and  until proven guilty.
