Sisseton Man, Storm Blue Charged with Aggravated Sexual Abuse of a Child

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Sisseton, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for aggravated sexual abuse of a child and for abusive sexual contact.

Storm Gaylord Blue, age 25, was indicted on December 4, 2018.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on March 5, 2019, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

According to the Indictment, in October 2017, in Roberts County, South Dakota, Blue engaged in forcible sexual acts with a child. The maximum penalties upon conviction for each count are as follows:  life imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both; a mandatory minimum term of five (5) years, up to life, of supervised release; $100 special assessment for victim/witness fund; $5,000 assessment to the domestic trafficking fund; and restitution may be ordered.

The charges are merely accusations and Blue is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

Blue was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.  A trial date of May 14, 2019, has been set.
