Federal jury convicts Peach Springs man

KINGMAN - A federal jury found Valance Ray Smith, Sr., 46, of Peach Springs, a member of the Hualapai Tribe, guilty of two counts of assault with a dangerous weapon and one count of assault resulting in serious bodily injury.

The case, which began Jan. 7, was tried before U.S. District Judge G. Murray Snow in Phoenix. The defendant is being held in federal custody pending sentencing, which is scheduled for March 31.

The evidence at trial showed that Smith assaulted the victim on July 8, 2011, and Sept. 29, 2012. During the 2011 assault, the defendant stabbed the victim in a domestic violence situation. During the 2012 assault, the defendant beat the victim with a metal pipe, causing her to suffer serious bodily injuries.

Convictions for assault with a dangerous weapon and assault resulting in serious bodily each carry a maximum penalty of 10 years, a $250,000 fine, or both.

The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Hualapai Nation Police Department investigated the case. Assistant U.S. Attorneys Christina J. Reid-Moore and Dimitra H. Sampson handled the prosecution.
