PIERRE -- A Fort Thompson man has pleaded guilty to bank burglary and sexual abuse of a minor.

Kelly W. McGhee Jr., 21, entered the pleas Monday in federal court in Pierre.

The burglary charge stems from a December 2009 incident when McGhee and another person broke into a convenience store in Wessington Springs and stole an automated teller machine.

In September 2009, McGhee engaged in a sexual act with a child younger than 16.

The maximum penalty for the burglary charge is 20 years in prison and a $250,000 fine, while the sexual abuse charge carries with it a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison and a $250,000 fine.
