U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Bullhead man charged with Sexual Abuse and Aiding & Abetting was sentenced on February 28, 2011, in Aberdeen by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann. Travis Weasel, age 31, was sentenced to 108 months in custody and 10 years of supervised release.

Weasel was indicted for Sexual Abuse and Aiding & Abetting by a federal grand jury in March 2010. Weasel pled guilty in November 2010. The charge stems from the sexual abuse of an incapacitated individual in Bullhead in November 2008.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Standing Rock Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Kelderman prosecuted the case.

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