SIOUX FALLS — A Lake Andes man convicted of abusive sexual contact by force was sentenced Wednesday in a Sioux Falls federal court.
According to a press release from United States Attorney Ron Parsons, Terry Clement Blaine, 63, was sentenced to 240 months in federal prison, followed by 10 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.
Blaine was indicted by a federal grand jury on Nov. 6, 2018. He pleaded guilty on June 26, 2019.
The conviction stemmed from incidents that occurred between 2010 and 2013, when Blaine knowingly engaged in sexual contact with a child under 12 years old. The molestation occurred while the child visited a relative’s home.
This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Blaine was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
