In a report from the Thermopolis Independent Record–more than a year after he was initially arrested–Hugo A. Luna was sentenced by District Judge Bobbi Overfield to 20 to 30 years in the Wyoming Department of Corrections on a felony charge of second degree attempted murder.
The charge was lessened from first-degree–and a second felony count of kidnapping was dismissed when Luna entered into a plea agreement on May 13th. The charges are from an April 13, 2018 incident.
On that date–a woman was discovered injured near mile marker 15 on Wyoming Highway 120. She was transported to Hot Springs County Hospital–investigators would learn there that she was assaulted–noting multiple injures to her face and neck.
Deputy County Attorney Curtis Cheney asked the community to accept the 20 to 30 year agreement–as the community must be protected from Luna.
The victim was contacted and informed about the sentence–but was not in attendance and no statement was provided–per the article.
