Peach Springs man to serve 34 months for knife incident

Erin Taylor
Miner Staff Reporter

A Peach Springs man was sentenced to close to three years in federal prison for an assault that occurred last year on the Hualapai Reservation.

Nicholas Angelo Imus Bravo, 21, was sentenced Monday to 34 months in federal prison, followed by three years of supervised release.

Bravo pleaded guilty in July to assault with a dangerous weapon for an attack that occurred on the reservation in August 2011. Authorities said Bravo assaulted a family member by slicing him in the neck with a knife. The victim survived but suffered serious injuries and has scarring on his neck.

It's not clear what prompted the attack. The case was handled by the Hualapai Nation Police Department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the U.S. Attorney's Office in Phoenix.

Reservations are breeding places for crime and the tax payers are supporting it.
The Reservation takes in over a million acres and cost the tax payers an ungodly amount. I used to know what it cost a year but I'm sure it has gone up.
They have some of the most pristine land in Arizona and never let us forget what we owe them, wanting more and more.
The bleeding hearts like NNP are the ones keeping reservations alive, but not well.
I say get rid of reservations and turn the welfare recipients into working Americans like the rest of us...of course democrats can't have that as they have to keep them voting for them...kinda like slavery!

@oh, come on - I said it's no justification for crime, but the violent theft of one's entire culture creates a certain antipathy which, unfortunately, plays out like this in some cases. Life is complicated, I'm sorry for what happened here, and the federal government robbed these people of everything which they held deeply in their souls - and for what?

It's not an island, tax dollars fund the programs, local taxes run the school. Members shop, live and socialize in Kingman. Sovereign doesn't mean much when you fund programs with federal money. Arizona is a sovereign government and just like the state its part of a larger whole. Hualapai is also a congressional created reservation. It could vanish with a congressional vote.

Abcdefg Hualapai is as sovereign as Kingman the state of Arizona or Mojave County government. You need to educate yourself.

@abcdefg abcdefg
If that's true...why does the FBI help investigate and a U.S. Attorney prosecute? And why do they go to a U.S. Federal prison?

Will the Sovereign Hualapai Nation be reimbursing the U.S. Government for the expenses?

The Hualapai Nation is a Sovereign Nation, it is none of Kingman's business what happens there.

Oh, ok... I see.... So someone else wrongs me so it's ok if I friggin' slice a member of my family's throat in retaliation for SOMEONE elses actions.... Geez. I guess if someone robs MY house it's ok if I come and rob YOURS, right? This world is losing it's collective mind!

it's no justification for crime, but having talked with Hualapai in the past, I'd be unhappy too if the federal government had stolen my peoples' land and all their historical artifacts - evidently including items from burial grounds - and refused ever since to honor claims submitted for their retrieval. Sometimes people will act out the disrespect with which they are treated. Take some of the naysayers here and subject them to it, and see how their tune would change.
