United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Abusive Sexual Contact.

Sonny Gray Grass, age 57, was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 22, 2012. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on April 9, 2013 and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to life in custody, a $250,000 fine, or both; life of supervised release; and a $100 Special Assessment. Restitution may also be ordered.

The charge is merely an accusation and Gray Grass is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers is prosecuting the case.

Gray Grass was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
