Mission Man Sentenced for Abusive Sexual Contact with a Child Under 12 Years Old

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact was sentenced on July 5, 2016, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Graham Brody Good Shield, age 20, was sentenced to 9 years in custody, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution has been left open for 90 days.

Good Shield was indicted on two counts of Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Child by a federal grand jury on August 11, 2015.  He pled guilty to Abusive Sexual Contact on March 29, 2016.

In June 2015, Good Shield was at a home in Rosebud, when he began drinking alcohol.  An 11-year-old child, the victim, was also at the home.  Good Shield intentionally made sexual contact with the victim and knew that the victim was a minor at the time.

This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Carrie G. Sanderson prosecuted the case.

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