SD High School All-Star Games Done In Aberdeen

Friday, July 31, 2015

The South Dakota High School All-Star Games will no longer be part of the Aberdeen summertime landscape. Reports are that the board that organizes the games has decided not to go forward with them. The summer all-star games for football, basketball and volleyball involve high school graduates from the past spring. They've been played in Aberdeen for nearly three decades.

But officials say interest in them has faded as other all-star events have popped up around the state, and the South Dakota High School Coaches Association earlier this year decided to pull its support. Board President Ken Wolff says there will continue to be all-star games in South Dakota, just not in a unified fashion in Aberdeen.

Fort Thompson Man Convicted Of Sexual Contact By Force

Friday, July 31, 2015

A Fort Thompson man convicted of Abusive Sexual Contact by Force was sentenced earlier this week.

22 year old Dillon Bagola was sentenced to 10 years in custody, followed by 5 years of supervised release. Bagola was indicted in August of 2014 and pled guilty in March of 2015.

The conviction stems from an incident in early August of 2014, when the victim was attending a birthday party. After the party, Bagola was to give the victim a ride home, but instead drove out to North Shore Road in Fort Thompson. He pulled over and forced the juvenile victim to engage in a sexual act with him.

Bagola was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshalls.
