Fort Washakie Man, Kyle Ferris Sentenced for Abusive Sexual Contact with a Minor

United States Attorney Mark A. Klaassen announced that Chief U.S. District Judge Scott W. Skavdahl sentenced a Fort Washakie, Wyoming man on June 12, 2019 on four counts of Abusive Sexual Contact.


Kyle James Ferris, age 35, was sentenced to serve a forty-month prison term, followed by 10 years of supervised release, and ordered to pay a special assessment of $400. He is further required to register as a sex offender.   Ferris pled guilty to the four counts of Abusive Sexual Contact on March 20, 2019. The convictions stem from multiple incidents between August 2012 and November 2013, in which Ferris engaged in sexual contact with a thirteen-year-old victim.

The Bureau of Indian Affairs and the Federal Bureau of Investigation investigated this case.  After sentencing, the court immediately remanded Ferris to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
