A Wessington man will spend three years in prison for violating the terms of his probation for a 2009 felony conviction.
Richard Stolsmark, 22, originally received a suspended imposition of sentence for having sexual contact with a child older than 13 but younger than 16. He admitted to violating his probation in October.
He was arrested in September in Beadle County for being in contact with people younger than 18, possessing drug paraphernalia and marijuana, and assaulting a police officer.
He also has two other pending charges against him, one in Beadle County and another in Hand County. Judge Sean O’Brien ordered Tuesday in Mitchell that this sentence run concurrent with any convictions in those cases.
O’Brien also ordered that Stolsmark participate in the STOP program while in prison and receive credit for time served.
