United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Wakpala man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact was sentenced on April 30, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.  Adrian B. Spotted Horse, age 33, was sentenced to 21 months of imprisonment, 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment.

Spotted Horse was indicted by a federal grand jury in October 2012.  He pled guilty to a Superseding Information on February 7, 2013.  The conviction stems from an incident on May 31, 2012, when Spotted Horse made two separate attempts to force sexual contact on the victim.

This case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Standing Rock Agency.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy Morley prosecuted the case.

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