Charlie Brown, whose real name is Anthony Rodriguez and who is 51 years old, has been sentenced to 108 months in prison for engaging in a methamphetamine distribution conspiracy. On September 12, 2023, U.S. District Court Judge Alan B. Johnson handed down the sentence. Court documents reveal that a Wyoming Division of Criminal Investigation (DCI) agent identified Rodriguez as the individual responsible for distributing methamphetamine in the Lovell, Wyoming region around October of 2021.
Working together with a United States Postal Inspector, the DCI agent intercepted a shipment of methamphetamine sent by Rodriguez through the U.S. Mail to Lovell. A controlled delivery was conducted on this package, confirming that Rodriguez was indeed supplying methamphetamine for distribution within Lovell's community.
Following these events, Rodriguez was indicted by a federal grand jury in Wyoming and subsequently pleaded guilty to his charges in June of 2023. The investigation into this matter involved both the DCI and the U.S Postal Inspection Service while Assistant U.S Attorney Timothy J. Forwood handled prosecution duties.
George Anthony Quiver Sr., a 39-year-old resident of Ethete, Wyoming, has been sentenced to 42 months in prison for committing assault that resulted in severe bodily harm. Judge Alan B. Johnson of the U.S. District Court handed down the sentence on September 12, 2023. As stated in legal records, Quiver viciously kicked and stomped on the victim's head, causing traumatic injuries and internal bleeding in the brain. The charges against Quiver were filed by complaint in April 2023 and he pleaded guilty to those charges in June of the same year. The case was thoroughly investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and expertly prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kerry J. Jacobson.
Another individual who received a similar fate is Darrell Moss Jr., aged 40 from Fremont County, Wyoming; he has been sentenced to serve 55 months behind bars for two counts—assault involving strangulation and assault resulting in serious bodily injury—inflicted upon another person during an incident that took place back in October of 2022.

Both cases highlight how these individuals' violent actions have had devastating consequences for their victims.Given their respective sentences,the judicial system makes it clear that such behavior will not be tolerated within society.The FBI's investigative efforts should also be acknowledged as they played a crucial role indeterminingthe truthand bringing the perpetrators to justice. The prosecutions led by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kerry J.Jacobson further demonstrate the commitment of legal authorities to ensure that those responsible for committing such heinous acts are held accountable for their actions.The sentences imposed upon Quiver and Moss serve as a reminder of the severe penalties that await individuals who engage in violent behavior, ultimately aimingto protectthe safety and well-beingof all membersof society.
Derick Lee Spadi, a 28-year-old resident of Wheat Ridge, Colorado, has been sentenced to 21 months in prison for being in possession of stolen mail. On September 14, 2023, U.S. District Court Judge Nancy D. Freudenthal handed down the sentence. According to court records, in December of 2022, the Laramie Police Department received a report about an individual acting suspiciously and stealing mail from the vicinity of North 11th Street in Laramie, Wyoming.
Upon arrival at the scene, an officer attempted to initiate a traffic stop on Derick Lee Spadi's vehicle but he chose not to comply and instead fled at a high rate of speed. Due to safety concerns, law enforcement discontinued their pursuit. The Albany County Sheriff's Office (ACSO) later located Spadi's vehicle and made another attempt at pulling him over with no success as he once again evaded capture while driving recklessly.
Eventually, it was the Wyoming Highway Patrol who managed to bring an end to Spadi's escape by employing spike strips on Interstate 80. Upon searching his vehicle during this encounter with law enforcement officials it was discovered that there were more than forty pieces of stolen mail inside including items taken from residences within the vicinity around N.11th Street.
In March of 2023 Derick Lee Spadi was indicted by a federal grand jury for his involvement in these criminal activities and subsequently pleaded guilty during proceedings held in June that year.
The U.S Postal Inspection Service conducted investigations into these incidents involving stolen mail while Assistant U.S Attorney Michael Elmore handled prosecution matters related thereto.
Robert Wilson Hinkley was also sentenced to 120 months for Child Pornography with over 1000 plus files on his computer.
