Rosebud Man Sentenced For Abusive Sexual Contact

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota, man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact was sentenced on November 18, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Francis Kills In Sight, age 20, was sentenced to 37 months in custody, 8 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Kills In Sight was indicted by a federal grand jury on October 16, 2012, for Aggravated Sexual Abuse.  He pled guilty to Abusive Sexual Contact on March 31, 2014.

The conviction stems from an incident that occurred in Rosebud on September 13, 2012, when Kills In Sight engaged in sexual contact with a child who had not reached the age of 12 years old.

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

Kills In Sight was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to begin serving his sentence.
