Michael Weddell, Jr., age 29, was sentenced to 120 months in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Weddell was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 6, 2018.  He pled guilty on April 5, 2019.

The conviction stemmed from incidents between June 1, 2015, and July 10, 2015, in Wagner, South Dakota, when Weddell knowingly engaged, and attempted to engage in, sexual contact with a child who had not attained the age of 12. Weddell used force to arouse and gratify his own sexual desire.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann M. Hoffman prosecuted the case.

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