Eden Man Sentenced to 13 Years in Federal Prison for Sexual Offenses Involving Child

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that an Eden, South Dakota, man convicted of two counts of Abuse Sexual Contact was sentenced on August 17, 2017, by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann.

Tyrell Redstar Eastman, age 21, was sentenced to 13 years in custody, followed by ten years of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay $200 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

According to the court documents, between August 15, 2014, and April 2, 2015, Eastman engaged in sexual contacts with a child. To perpetrate the sexual assault, Eastman threatened and placed the victim in fear. Such sexual contact involved the defendant’s intentional touching, either directly or through the clothing, of the victim’s genitalia, anus, groin, breast, inner thigh, and buttocks. Defendant had the intent to abuse, humiliate, harass, degrade, arouse, and gratify his sexual desires. At the time of this sexual assault, the defendant was 18 years old.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Tribe’s Law Enforcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeremy R. Jehangiri prosecuted the case.

Eastman was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal’s Service.
