United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man convicted of Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Child was sentenced on August 28, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Justin Robert LeBeau, age 41, was sentenced to 42 months in custody, 2 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
         
LeBeau was indicted for Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Child by a federal grand jury on September 17, 2013. He pled guilty on March 24, 2014.

This case was investigated by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson prosecuted the case.
         
LeBeau was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to begin serving his sentence.
