United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Parmelee, South Dakota, man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact was sentenced on July 1, 2019, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Mason Neck, age 28, was sentenced to 72 months in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Neck was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 14, 2018.  He pled guilty on April 3, 2019.

The conviction stemmed from conduct that occurred between June 2016 and August 2016, wherein Neck knowingly engaged in sexual contact with a child who was between two and three years old.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson prosecuted the case.

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