ALBUQUERQUE—This afternoon a federal judge in Albuquerque sentenced Karl Domingo, 37, an enrolled member of the Navajo Nation who resides in Rock Spring, New Mexico, to a 24-month prison term for his abusive sexual contact conviction. Domingo will be on supervised release for seven years after he completes his prison sentence. He also will be required to register as a sex offender.

Domingo pled guilty to an information charging him with abusive sexual contact with a minor on June 6, 2012 under a plea agreement with the U.S. Attorney’s Office. In his plea agreement, Domingo admitted that, in the summer of 2007, he sexually assaulted a 10-year-old female child by touching her genitalia with his finger. Domingo further admitted that the sexual assault occurred at the child’s home which was located within the Navajo Indian Reservation.

This case was investigated by the Gallup Resident Office of the FBI, and was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Kyle T. Nayback.
