South Dakota man sentenced to 3 years in federal prison in abusive sexual contact case


PIERRE, South Dakota — A South Dakota man who admitted to sexually abusing a woman on the Rosebud Indian Reservation has been sentenced to three years in federal prison.

U.S. District Judge Roberto Lange ordered the 31-year-old Cyprian Night Shield to follow his prison term with five years of supervised release. The Rosebud man earlier pleaded guilty to one count of abusive sexual contact.

Federal prosecutors say Night Shield was at his home on Aug. 15, 2014, when a woman visited him. Authorities say Night Shield took the woman to a back bedroom and locked the door, showed her pornography and sexually abused her.

Night Shield is now under the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
