U.S. Attorney Brendan Johnson says that Chief Judge Jeffrey Viken sentenced Edwin Johnson in federal court for sexual abuse of a minor. Johnson was indicted by a federal grand jury in November and pleaded guilty in April.

He was turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshal.

The case was investigated by the Martin Police Department, the South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
