Jury Finds SD Man Guilty Of Sex Abuse Charges

December 11, 2012, 3:45 PM

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A jury has found a South Dakota man guilty of two sex-related crimes but not guilty of kidnapping in two incidents near Dupree.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson announced Tuesday that 31-year-old Patrick Brown Thunder, of Eagle Butte, was convicted last week of sex with a minor and sexual abuse of a person incapable of consenting. Brown Thunder was found not guilty of one count of sexual abuse and a kidnapping charge.

The charges stem from two incidents that occurred in April 2006 and March 2008.

Brown Thunder faces up to life in prison and a $250,000 fine for the sex abuse charge and 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine for the sex with a minor charge.

Brown Thunder's lawyer, Dana Hanna, says his client plans to appeal.
