United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Fort Thompson, South Dakota, man convicted of Sexual Abuse of a Minor was sentenced on April 9, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Jordan Traversie, 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.
         
Traversie was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 14, 2013.  He pled guilty on January 14, 2014.
         
The conviction stems from an incident occurring between August 4, 2012, and September 30, 2012, when Traversie knowingly engaged in sexual intercourse with the victim who had not attained the age of 16 and was at least 4 years younger than Traversie.
         
This case was investigated by the Bureau of Indian Affairs.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges prosecuted the case.
         
Traversie was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
