Rosebud Man Sentenced for Abusive Sexual Contact

U.S. Attorney’s Office May 17, 2013
  • District of South Dakota (605) 330-4400

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rosebud, South Dakota man convicted of abusive sexual contact was sentenced on May 14, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Robert I. Pomani, age 21, was sentenced to 24 months’ imprisonment, five years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Pomani was indicted by a federal grand jury in October 2012. He pled guilty to a superseding information on February 15, 2013. The conviction stems from an incident in December 2010 when Pomani was in a relationship with the victim. At that time, Pomani was 19 years old and at least four years older than the victim. While in the relationship, Pomani engaged in conduct that resulted in abusive sexual contact.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley prosecuted the case.

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