United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Norris, South Dakota, man convicted of Sexual Abuse of a Minor was sentenced on January 13, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.
Jeremy Eagle Bear, age 23, was sentenced to 18 months in custody, 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Eagle Bear was indicted for Sexual Abuse of a Minor by a federal grand jury on August 21, 2013.  He pled guilty on October 24, 2013.
The conviction stems from an incident on February 11, 2011, when Eagle Bear met the 13 year old victim at a house party and had sexual intercourse with her.
This case was investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher prosecuted the case.
Eagle Bear was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
