  • District of South Dakota (605) 330-4400

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Scott Ray Marrowbone, age 36, of Cherry Creek, South Dakota, appeared before U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange on January 25, 2013, and pled guilty to count two of the indictment that charged him with sexual contact with a minor. The maximum penalty upon conviction is two years of custody, a $250,000 fine, or both; at least five years of supervised release up to life; and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.

The conviction arose from an incident that occurred between May 2005 and October 2007 when Marrowbone sexually assaulted a female minor near Eagle Butte, South Dakota.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson.

A presentence investigation was ordered, and a sentencing date was set for April 15, 2013. The defendant was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending sentencing.
