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 August 19, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange. 

Laun Leroy McCloskey, age 19, was sentenced to 37 months in custody, 8 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

McCloskey was indicted by a federal grand jury on April 2, 2013, and pled guilty to the charge on April 30, 2013.

The conviction stems from an incident that took place on March 16, 2013, when McCloskey had sexual contact with a minor.

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

McCloskey was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
