United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Pine Ridge man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for engaging in sexual acts with a minor child.

Jason One Feather, age 39, was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 15, 2012, for Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Minor. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on June 20, 2012, and pleaded not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon each conviction is life imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine. The charges are merely accusations, and One Feather is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Eric Kelderman is prosecuting the case. One Feather was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has not yet been set.
