Cherry Creek Man Sentenced For Sexually Assaulting A Female Minor

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Cherry Creek, South Dakota, man convicted of Sexual Contact with a Minor was sentenced on July 25, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Scott Ray Marrowbone, age 37, was sentenced to 24 months in custody, five years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  He must also register as a sex offender.

Marrowbone was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 16, 2012. He pled guilty to Count II of the Indictment—Sexual Contact with a Minor—on January 25, 2013.

The conviction arose from an incident that occurred between May 2005 and October 2007 when Marrowbone sexually assaulted a female minor near Eagle Butte.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson.
