United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Little Eagle, South Dakota man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for sexual abuse of a minor.
Corey Flying Bye, age 25, was indicted on March 11, 2014. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge William D. Gerdes on March 18, 2014, and pled not guilty to the indictment.
The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 15 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, up to life of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.
The indictment alleges that between December 1, 2013 and January 31, 2014, Flying Bye knowingly engaged in, and attempted to engage in, a sexual act with a victim who had not attained the age of 16.
The charge is merely an accusation, and Flying Bye is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley is prosecuting the case.
Flying Bye was released on bond pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
