A South Dakota man convicted of multiple rapes over several years has been re-sentenced to nearly 30 years in prison.
U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 28-year-old James Bruguier Jr. has been ordered to serve concurrent sentences of 354 months, 300 months and 180 months for three convictions.
The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ordered the resentencing after the Lake Andes appealed his original sentence of 30 years in prison. He is now expected to serve 29.5 years.
A federal jury convicted Bruguier in August 2011 on charges of sexual abuse, aggravated sexual abuse, sexual abuse of a minor and burglary.
Johnson has said the crimes involved sexual assaults on an adult and two teenagers from the Yankton Sioux reservation.
