Peever man sentenced to 10 years for abusive sexual contact

ABERDEEN, S.D. (Press Release) — United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced today that a Peever, South Dakota man convicted of abusive sexual contact has been sent to prison by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann.

David Seaboy, Sr., age 57, was sentenced to 120 months in federal prison, to be followed by 10 years of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

According to court documents, in November 2007 Seaboy engaged in, and attempted to engage in, sexual contact with a person who was under the age of 12. The judge’s remarks stated that Seaboy acted with an intent to abuse, humiliate, harass, and degrade the child, and to arouse and gratify his own sexual desires.

The investigation was conducted by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and by the Sisseton-Wahpeton Sioux Tribe’s Law Enforcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeremy R. Jehangiri prosecuted the case. Seaboy was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
