United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Parmelee, South Dakota, man charged with Sexual Abuse of a Minor was sentenced on April 16, 2012, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Michael Philip Guerue, age 23, was sentenced to 30 months in custody, 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.
Guerue was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 8, 2011, and pled guilty to the charge on January 31, 2012.
The conviction stems from Guerue having sexual contact with a 13 year old female during the time period of June 17 to June 20, 2011, in Parmelee.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Tim Maher.
Guerue was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal.
