A federal grand jury has indicted a man in connection with a carjacking in 2013, according to U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom’s office.
John Michael Devosha, 25, who is in federal custody, was charged in a superseding indictment with two counts of carjacking, one count of unlawful possession of a firearm and two counts of using a firearm during a carjacking. The crimes are alleged to have occurred Oct. 22 in Kansas City, Kan., and Oct. 25, 2013, on the Prairie Band Potawatomi Reservation.
If convicted, he faces a maximum penalty of 15 years in federal prison and a fine up to $250,000 on each carjacking count, a maximum penalty of 10 years and a fine up to $250,000 on the possession charge, and a penalty of not less than five years on each of the other two counts. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives investigated. Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Erin Tomasic is prosecuting.
