For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of South Dakota

United States Attorney Alison J. Ramsdell announced that an Albuquerque, New Mexico, man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact was sentenced on July 6, 2022, by Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Nathan Andrew Castillo, age 53, was sentenced to 40 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Castillo was indicted by a federal grand jury in April 2019.  He pleaded guilty on March 3, 2022.

The conviction stems from Castillo sexually abusing a female child, who was under the age of 12, in May 2018 near Oglala, South Dakota.

This case was investigated by the FBI.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Megan Poppen prosecuted the case.

Castillo was immediately remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
