BILLINGS—A Busby man who admitting having sex with a minor on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation in 2017 was sentenced today to 37 months in prison and to five years of supervised release, said U.S. Attorney Kurt Alme.

Romer Jesse Jaure, 28, pleaded guilty in April to sexual abuse of a minor.

U.S. District Judge Susan P. Watters presided.

In court documents filed in the case, the prosecution said Jaure had sex with a minor in September 2017 at his residence after he and the victim had been drinking and smoking marijuana. The victim told Jaure no but he ignored her. The victim was between the ages of 12 and 16 at the time.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Bryan Dake prosecuted the case, which was investigated by the FBI.
