Sioux Falls man sentenced to 10 months for rape, sexual contact with girls younger than 16


SIOUX FALLS, South Dakota — A Sioux Falls man who was convicted of rape for having sexual contact with young girls has been sentenced to 10 months in jail.

Twenty-two-year-old Tyler Lee Schlotman was sentenced Thursday on one count of rape and one count of sexual contact with a child under 16.

Authorities say the charges involved two victims, one of whom he met on Facebook. Authorities say Schlotman admitted to the allegations against him.

He faced up to 30 years in prison. Prosecutors say 19 other charges, some of which involved three additional victims, were dismissed as part of a plea agreement.

This story has been corrected to show Schlotman was sentenced to 10 months, not 90 days, according to a news release from prosecutors.
