Sicangu Village Man Indicted for Aggravated Sexual Abuse

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Sicangu Village, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Aggravated Sexual Abuse.

Conrad Good Voice, Jr., age 24, was indicted on February 11, 2020.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on February 19, 2020, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to life in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 5 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that on June 4, 2018, in Todd County, South Dakota, Good Voice knowingly engaged in a sexual act with the minor victim, by the use of force.

The charge is merely an accusation and Good Voice is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services and Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Kirk Albertson is prosecuting the case.   

Good Voice was released on bond pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
