Eagle Butte man gets 11 years for child sexual abuse

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Authorities say an Eagle Butte man has been sentence to 11 years and three months in prison for child sexual abuse.

U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says 28-year-old Daniel Briggs was convicted on Monday of abusive sexual contact with a child.

Authorities say Briggs' conviction is the result of an incident that occurred between December 2010 and December 2012, when Briggs was living with the victim's mother.

Authorities say the child was between the ages of 3 and 5 years old when the sexual abuse occurred.
