BURKE - A Dallas man pleaded guilty to distributing methamphetamine to and having sexual contact with a minor.

Donald Story, 51, pleaded guilty to the two charges Thursday at the Gregory County Courthouse in Burke, according to the South Dakota Attorney General’s Office.

The charges stem from incidents that occurred between Feb. 1 and May 6 at Story’s residence in Dallas, in which he gave methamphetamine and performed sexual acts with a 14-year-old girl.

On May 6, the girl told a South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation agent that Story smoked methamphetamine with her and made sexual advances, court documents state, though she denied that they had sex.

Distributing meth to a minor is a Class 2 felony, punishable by up to 25 years in prison and a $50,000 fine. Sexual contact with a child under 16 is a Class 3 felony, punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a $30,000 fine. No sentencing date was mentioned.

Story initially pleaded not guilty to the charges in September, which included two more counts of distribution of methamphetamine to a minor, an additional count of sexual contact with a child, three counts of fourth-degree rape, aggravated incest, solicitation of a minor and possession of methamphetamine and marijuana.

The incident also led to charges against Richard Sund, 52, of Colome, who pleaded guilty in October to solicitation of a minor, a Class 4 felony.
