Porcupine Man Sentenced for Abusive Sexual Contact

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Porcupine, South Dakota, man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact was sentenced on July 29, 2014, by Chief Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

Jaron Thunder Hawk, age 21, was sentenced to 96 months in custody, six years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Thunder Hawk was indicted for three charges of Aggravated Sexual Abuse by a federal grand jury on January 22, 2014. He pled guilty to the charge of Abusive Sexual Contact on April 3, 2014.

The conviction stems from Thunder Hawk having abusive sexual contact with young female relatives between January and August 2013 near Porcupine.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Kathryn N. Rich prosecuted the case.

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