Dupree Woman Sentenced for Child Abuse

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Dupree, South Dakota, woman convicted of Child Abuse was sentenced on October 15, 2018, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Dale Hendricks, age 37, was sentenced to 12 months and 1 day in federal prison, followed by 2 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Hendricks was indicted by a federal grand jury on January 17, 2018.  She pled guilty on July 24, 2018.

The conviction stemmed from an incident on November 3, 2017, when Hendricks had a night of drinking and shared a bed with her infant child, exposing him to a dangerous situation.

This case was investigated by Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller prosecuted the case.

Hendricks was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
