Here is the opinion in United States v. Charley.
The panel affirmed Seraphina Charley’s conviction on one count of making false statements to a government official, vacated her convictions on two counts of assault within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States, and remanded for a new trial on the assault counts and for resentencing on the false-statements count.
The convictions stem from an incident with Charley’s boyfriend, Merle Begay, whom Charley hit in the head with a piece of rebar after, she claimed, he attacked her while he was drunk.
