White Swan Man Sentenced for Assaulting Woman with Shoe

Posted: Updated:

SPOKANE, Wash. -- A White Swan man will spend the next 7 years behind bars for assaulting a woman with a shoe.

28-year-old Chet Arlie Moses was sentenced on Monday after pleading guilty in March, 2013 to committing an Assault with a Dangerous Weapon.  Moses was sentenced to an 84-month term of imprisonment, followed by a 3-year term of court supervision upon release from Federal prison. 

Moses was ordered to also pay nearly $4,000 in restitution to a Toppenish hospital and a health services organization.

On November 9, 2012, Moses, a member of the Spokane Tribe of Indians, and the female-victim had a verbal argument. The argument escalated and Moses began beating the female-victim with his fists and a shoe. Moses told the female-victim that he was going to kill her family.

The female-victim was able to flee from the scene and immediately contacted the Yakama Tribal Police Department. Tribal Police officers responded and observed that the female-victim was covered in blood.

She was transported to the Toppenish Community Hospital where she was provided medical assistance.

The Yakama Tribal Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation obtained a search warrant for Moses' residence located in White Swan. At the residence, the law enforcement officers observed a pool of dried blood on a blanket and also discovered a shoe with blood on the sole.

Law enforcement officers later interviewed Moses and he confessed that he had assaulted the female-victim.
