Mission Man Sentenced For Abusive Sexual Contact

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact was sentenced on July 11, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange. 

Eddie Hummingbird, age 48, was sentenced to 24 months in custody, 5 years of supervised release, $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund, and ordered to register as a sex offender.

Hummingbird was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 22, 2012, and pled guilty to the charge on March 4, 2013.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on April 14, 2012, when Hummingbird sexually abused the victim.

The investigation was conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher.

Hummingbird was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.
