Rosebud Man Sentenced For Abusive Sexual Contact

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact was sentenced on May 14, 2013 by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Robert I. Pomani, age 21, was sentenced to 24 months’ imprisonment, 5 years of supervised release and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Pomani was indicted by a federal grand jury in October of 2012. He pled guilty to a Superseding Information on February 15, 2013. The conviction stems from an incident in December of 2010 when Pomani was in a relationship with the victim. At that time, Pomani was 19 years old and at least 4 years older than the victim. While in the relationship, Pomani engaged in conduct which resulted in abusive sexual contact.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley prosecuted the case.

Pomani was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
