United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Cherry Creek, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Sexual Abuse of a Minor.
Sylvan Larrabee, 23 of Cherry Creek, has been indicted by a federal grand jury on the charge of Sexual Abuse of a Minor. The grand jury handed down the charges on March 15, 2016. Larrabee appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on March 30, 2016, and pled not guilty.
If convicted, Larrabee faces up to 30 years in custody, and/or a $500,000 fine, and life of supervised release.
The charges stem from incidents that occurred between March 1, 2015, and May 29, 2015, and state that Larrabee knowingly caused and attempted to cause a minor female to engage in sexual acts.
Larrabee was released on bond and a trial date has not yet been set.
The charges are merely accusations and Larrabee is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe are conducting the investigation. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.
