Fort Totten, North Dakota, Man Sentenced to Federal Prison for Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Child

FARGO - US Attorney Christopher C. Myers announced that on May 23, 2016, Jade Shilo OldRock, 42, of Fort Totten, ND, was sentenced before US District Judge Ralph R. Erickson after a federal jury found him guilty on July 17, 2015, of Sexual Abuse of a Child and Commission of a Federal Sex Offense by a Registered Sex Offender. OldRock was sentenced to a total of 40 years on the two counts, plus 10 years of supervised release. OldRock was also ordered to pay a $200 special assessment to the Crime Victims’ Fund.

In or about May 2014, OldRock was temporarily residing at the residence of the victim, who had not yet attained the age of 12, when he and the victim’s father came home from a night of drinking. The victim testified at trial that she woke up when OldRock began performing a sexual act on her while she was asleep.

OldRock has a previous conviction for Sexual Abuse of a Minor in 1998. Because he committed this offense while he was a registered sex offender, a consecutive 10 years was imposed along with the underlying 30-year minimum mandatory sentence for the sexual abuse of a child under the age of 12.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Bureau of Indian Affairs - Fort Totten Agency.

Assistant US Attorneys Janice Morley and Matt Greenley prosecuted this case.
