The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to life in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 5 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that on December 30, 2018, Iron Hawk entered a home occupied by an individual and sexually assaulted the victim.

The charges are merely accusations and Iron Hawk is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Iron Hawk was released on bond pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
