United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a St. Francis, South Dakota man charged with sexual abuse of a minor was sentenced on September 26, 2012, by United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange. Ennors Abraham Quick Bear, age 24, was sentenced to 12 months and one day in custody, five years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Victim Assistance Fund.
Quick Bear was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 13, 2012, and pled guilty to the charge on July 10, 2012.
The conviction stems from an incident that took place between January 1, 2009 and October 10, 2010, when Quick Bear engaged in a sexual act with a minor who was about 14 years old.
The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case was prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Tim Maher.
Quick Bear was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshals Service.
