Cherry Creek Man Charged with Sexual Abuse

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Cherry Creek, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Sexual Abuse.

Keeler Condon, a/k/a “Bud” Condon, age 32, was indicted on July 17, 2018.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on July 19, 2018, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to life in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, up to life of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that on or about May 28, 2018, Condon knowingly engaged in, and attempted to engage in, a sexual act with a female juvenile victim who was incapable of appraising the nature of the conduct, and was physically incapable of declining participation in and communicating an unwillingness to engage in the sexual act.

The charge is merely an accusation and Condon is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.   

Condon was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial, which has been set for September 18, 2018.
