United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly engaging in and attempting to engage in a sexual act with a female child between January 2007 and December 2008 near Kyle, South Dakota.

Charles Anaya, age 42, was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 21, 2013 for aggravated sexual abuse. Anaya appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on June 12, 2013 and pled not guilty to the indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to life imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. The charge is merely an accusation and Anaya is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U. S. Attorney Wayne Venhuizen is prosecuting the case.

Anaya was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has been set for August 20, 2013.
