United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Aggravated Sexual Abuse was sentenced on January 8, 2013, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Justin Beardt, age 30, was sentenced to 11 years in custody, 5 years supervised release, $320 in restitution, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on January 23, 2011, when Beardt sexually abused the victim by force.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Tim Maher.

Beardt was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal.
