The maximum penalty is one year in prison, a $100,000 fine or both, one year of supervised release, an additional year of supervised release upon revocation, and a $25 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.

The charge stems from an incident between May 8 and May 9, wherein Quilt and the victim, who were involved in an intimate, dating relationship, had both been out drinking, but separately. During the morning hours of May 9, Quilt went to her home and the victim arrived later. A physical assault occurred between Quilt and the victim, which resulted in the victim suffering injuries to his neck and face that required medical treatment.

Quilt was released on bond pending sentencing, which has been set for November.
