Description: Great Falls, Montana criminal defense lawyer represented Defendant charged with assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.

on Nov. 19, 2021, Calvin Lame Bull Juneau, age 37, and co-defendant, Dale Ray Racine, entered a residence in Browning, On the Blackfeet Indian Reservation, and assaulted the victim, identified as John Doe, who was sleeping in a bedroom. Doe awoke and saw Juneau and Racine rushing toward him. Juneau had a claw hammer in his hands. The victim received multiple strikes in the head, one to his hand and one to his leg. The victim was treated for head injuries at the Indian Health Service in Browning. Racine was sentenced previously to two years in prison for his conviction in the case.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the FBI and Blackfeet Law Enforcement Services.


"Assault and battery are two crimes that are often confused with each other. However, there is a key difference between the two. Assault is the threat of violence, while battery is the actual use of violence.

Assault is defined as an act that puts another person in reasonable apprehension of immediate harmful or offensive contact. This means that the victim must have a reasonable fear that they are about to be harmed. Assault can be committed through words or actions. For example, if you threaten to punch someone, you have committed assault.

Battery is defined as the intentional and unlawful use of force or violence against another person. This means that the victim must have been physically harmed. Battery can be committed by hitting, kicking, pushing, or any other form of physical contact.

In some cases, assault and battery can be charged together. For example, if you threaten to punch someone and then actually punch them, you could be charged with both assault and battery.

The penalties for assault and battery vary depending on the severity of the crime. In some cases, assault and battery can be misdemeanors, which carry a sentence of up to one year in jail and a fine. In other cases, assault and battery can be felonies, which carry a sentence of more than one year in jail and a fine."
