Kyle Man Sentenced to 45 Years in Federal Prison for Sexual Assault

Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Kyle, South Dakota, man convicted of two counts of Abusive Sexual Contact was sentenced by Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Antonio Frazier, age 35, was sentenced on April 5, 2021, to 45 years in federal prison, followed by a lifetime of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund for each charge.  The time in federal prison is to be served concurrently.

Frazier was indicted by a federal grand jury in February 2020.  The charges related to Frazier, between 2005 and 2011, having sexual contact with a minor female child at a housing development near Kyle.  Between 2003 and 2004, Frazier also had sexual contact with another juvenile female near Kyle.

This case was investigated by the Oglala Sioux Tribe Department of Public Safety and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Megan Poppen prosecuted the case.

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