(RENO, Nev.) -- A 26-year-old Winnemucca man was indicted by a federal grand jury for two separate cases that involved shooting and trafficking of minors, The Reno Gazette-Journal reports.
A Reno federal grand jury indicted Adam Scott on May 9 with two counts of assault with a deadly weapon and two counts of use of a firearm related to a crime of violence, the paper says. Scott drove by a home on April 27 on the Fort McDermitt Indian reservation and fired several shots at the home and nearby people, according to the indictment. Scott also shot at two people who went to his home after the shooting. One of the victims was allegedly shot in the abdomen, according to the Gazette-Journal.
Scott was then charged in an indictment on May 10 with transporting a minor from California to Nevada in July 2010 for the purposes of prostitution. Scott allegedly used force, fraud or coercion to get the girl to engage in sex acts, the paper says.
He is also charged in a second count with causing a second minor to engage in sex acts using force, fraud or coercion, according to the Gazette-Journal.
Scott may face up to 40 years if he is convicted for assault, and up to life in prison if he is convicted for sex trafficking.
