PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A Rosebud man has been sentenced to 15 years in prison after pleading guilty to abusive sexual contact and assault related to an incident involving children.

U.S. Attorney Randolph J. Seiler said 25-year-old Benton Brave Hawk was sentenced this week and turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.

Prosecutors say that between December 2014 and March 2015, Brave Hawk watched two children overnight at their home in Rosebud and at some point went to a bed where siblings were sleeping.

Prosecutors say Brave Hawk had abusive sexual contact with the female child and later hit the male child with a belt.
