United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a St. Francis, South Dakota man has been indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts of Abusive Sexual Contact.

Alfred Theodore Boneshirt, age 59, was indicted on June 12, 2013.  Boneshirt appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on July 10, 2013 and pled not guilty to the indictment. 

The maximum penalty upon conviction is any term of years up to life imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both; 5 years up to life of supervised release; and a mandatory $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered. 

The charges are merely accusations, and Boneshirt is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Boneshirt was released to third party custodians pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
