Eagle Butte Man Pleads Guilty to Sexual Contact (U.S. Attorney for the District of South Dakota)
U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Daniel Red Horse, Jr., 41, of Eagle Butte, appeared in federal court on Jan. 19, 2012, and pleaded guilty to sexual contact. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 2 years in prison, a $250,000 fine and five years of supervised release. The conviction stems from a report on March 31, 2011, in which the Cheyenne River Sioux Department of Social Services received information that a minor had been sexually abused by Red Horse, Jr. in 2009. A forensic interview was completed, and the victim indicated that the abuse occurred while the victim was sleeping. Red Horse later admitted during an interview with an FBI agent that he sexually abused the victim while the victim was sleeping. A sentencing date was set for April 16, 2012.
