(STL.News) – United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Fort Thompson, South Dakota, man convicted of Assault Resulting in Substantial Bodily Injury to an Intimate Partner was sentenced on September 21, 2020, by Chief Judge Roberto A. Lange, U.S. District Court.

Thomas Drapeau, Sr., age 32, was sentenced to all time served, 6 months and 10 days, 3 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Drapeau was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 9, 2020.  He pled guilty on June 29, 2020.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley prosecuted the case.

Drapeau was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
