North Dakota Man Sentenced for Abusive Sexual Contact of a Minor

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Fort Yates, North Dakota, man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact of a Minor was sentenced on July 28, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann.

Cecil White Bull, age 41, was sentenced to 20 years in custody, 10 years of supervised release, a $15,000 fine, and a $300 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

White Bull was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 17, 2013. He pled guilty on April 22, 2014.

The conviction stems from incidents which occurred between November 1, 2009, and October 31, 2011, when White Bull, while residing at his mother’s house in Bullhead, sexually abused his nieces and nephew, while he helped care for all three victims.

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

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