The FBI says Castenda is charged with these actions toward a partner between January and February 2018 on on the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation (CTUIR).

The FBI says the woman is a tribal member and Castenda is not.

He made his first appearance before a federal magistrate in Yakima on Feb. 28 and is scheduled to have a detention hearing on Mar. 2.

The FBI says his case will eventually move back to the U.S. District Court in Oregon.
