SALT LAKE CITY — A member of the Navajo tribe who played a role in a violent assault of a woman is headed to prison.
U.S. District Judge Ted Stewart this week sentenced Michael Whitehorse to 46 months in a federal penitentiary. Under federal guidelines, Whitehorse, 21, of Montezuma Creek, faced up to 37 months in prison. But Stewart increased the sentence due to several factors including the victim's severe injuries and the fact she was abandoned in a remote area of the Navajo Nation.
