Mitchell Man Sentenced To Prison For Sexually Abusing A Girl

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Mitchell man is going to federal prison for more than 24 years for sexually abusing a girl.

Thirty-year-old Terace Castaway was sentenced in Sioux Falls on Monday after earlier pleading guilty to sexual abuse.

Prosecutors say it happened between August 2008 and May 2009 and involved a young girl who was under his care. The U.S. Attorney’s Office says that while the victim and her cousins were playing a game of hide and seek, Castaway came into the bathroom where she was hiding and sexually assaulted her.

As part of the plea agreement, Castaway also acknowledged sexually abusing three other young girls on several occasions while they were at their grandmother’s home in Lower Brule.
