Eagle Butte Man Sentenced For Sexually Assaulting A Person Incapable Of Consenting

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man convicted of Sexual Abuse of a Person Incapable of Consenting was sentenced on August 5, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Frank Hill, age 38, was sentenced to 96 months of custody, 5 years of supervised release, and $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Hill was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 16, 2012, and pled guilty to the offense on May 14, 2013.  

The conviction arose from an incident in November 2009, when Hill sexually assaulted an adult female victim who was sleeping at her home in Eagle Butte.

The investigation was conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson.

Hill was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal to begin serving his sentence.
