St. Francis Man Sentenced for Abusive Sexual Contact

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a St. Francis, South Dakota, man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact was sentenced on July 5, 2016, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Gregory Paul Quigley, age 51, was sentenced to 1 year and 1 day in custody, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Quigley was indicted for Aggravated Sexual Abuse by Force by a federal grand jury on September 9, 2015.  He pled guilty to a Superseding Information charging him with Abusive Sexual Contact on March 29, 2016.

On November 30, 2013, Quigley and a woman, the victim, were drinking alcohol together in an abandoned house in St. Francis.  Quigley intentionally made sexual contact with the victim while the victim was incapable of appraising the nature of the conduct.

This case was investigated by the Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Carrie Sanderson prosecuted the case.

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