An alleged cult leader and former actor accused of sexually assaulting Native American women and girls was indicted Wednesday on 19 felony charges.

Nathan Chasing Horse, 46, made a brief court appearance in North Las Vegas Justice Court on Wednesday morning, and Chief Deputy Public Defender Kristy Holston said prosecutors filed court documents indicating they intended to indict Chasing Horse.

A grand jury returned an indictment against Chasing Horse later Wednesday morning on 10 counts of sexual assault of a minor under 16, six counts of sexual assault, and one count each of open and gross lewdness, first-degree kidnapping of a minor and trafficking a controlled substance.

District Judge Jerry Wiese said Chasing Horse would continue to be held in custody with a $300,000 bail.

The indictment identifies two alleged victims of Chasing Horse through their initials and accuses him of sexual assault dating back to 2012.

In multiple of the sexual assault charges, prosecutors allege that Chasing Horse either raped one of the victims or assaulted her “by counseling, encouraging, inducing, or otherwise procuring” an unknown person or persons to assault the victim while she was blindfolded in a hotel room, according to the indictment.
