Kamiah Man Charged With Involuntary Manslaughter

Posted: Updated:

Department Of Justice Press Release:

COEUR D'ALENE – Nicholas P. Allman, 22, of Kamiah, Idaho, was arraigned yesterday in United States District Court on a charge of involuntary manslaughter, U.S. Attorney Wendy J. Olson announced. Allman was indicted on November 15, 2012, by a federal grand jury sitting in Boise.

His trial has been set for February 19, 2013, before Chief U.S. District Judge B. Lynn Winmill at the federal courthouse in Coeur d'Alene.


The indictment alleges that on October 29, 2011, Allman was driving recklessly and under the influence of alcohol on Harris Ridge Road, which is located on the Nez Perce Indian Reservation.

The indictment alleges that because Allman failed to keep his vehicle on the roadway, a passenger, James Oatman Jr., was killed when the vehicle wrecked.


If convicted, Allman faces up to eight years in prison, a maximum fine of $250,000, and up to three years of supervised release.


The case is being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Idaho State Police, and Nez Perce Tribal Police.


An indictment is a means of charging a person with criminal activity. It is not evidence. The person is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt in a court of law.
