United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Lower Brule, South Dakota, man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact with a Minor was sentenced on December 12, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Robert Stricker, age 39, was sentenced to 30 months of custody, 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Stricker was indicted for the above charge by a federal grand jury on November 15, 2012.  He pled guilty on September 17, 2013.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place in Lower Brule between August 25th and into the early morning hours of August 26, 2012, when Stricker engaged in sexual contact by touching the victim over the clothes.  At the time of the offense, the victim was under the age of 16. 
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Bureau of Indian Affairs.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges prosecuted the case.
Stricker was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
