Parmelee Man Sentenced For Abusive Sexual Contact By Force

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Parmelee, South Dakota, man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact by Force was sentenced on May 12, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Daryl Plumman, age 21, was sentenced to 5 years in custody, 5 years of supervised release, a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund, and $44.46 in restitution.
Plumman was indicted for Abusive Sexual Contact by Force by a federal grand jury on May 15, 2013.  He pled guilty on February 20, 2014.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place in July 2011 at Parmelee, when Plumman began to kiss the victim and she attempted to end the encounter.  Plumman held her down while he removed her pants and touched her inappropriately. 
This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Marie H. Ruettgers prosecuted the case.
Plumman was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
