Rosebud Man Charged With Sexual Abuse Of A Minor

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Sexual Abuse of a Minor.

Gerald Duane Iron Shooter, age 21, was indicted on February 12, 2014.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on March 7, 2014, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 15 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, up to life of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that between January 1, 2012, and January 31, 2012, Iron Shooter engaged in, and attempted to engage in, a sexual act with the victim who had not attained the age of 16 years.

The charge is merely an accusation and Iron Shooter is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges is prosecuting the case.   

Iron Shooter was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
