Manderson Man Sentenced for Abusive Sexual Contact

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Manderson, South Dakota, man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact was sentenced by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Edward Red Feather, age 32, was sentenced on June 5, 2018, to 2 years and 7 months in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

The conviction stems from Red Feather engaging in sexual contact with a female while she was passed out in November 2017, at Manderson.

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

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