Fort Thompson Man Charged With Failure To Register As A Sex Offender

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Fort Thompson, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury.

Kyle Marks, age 29, was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 12, 2013, for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.  Marks appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on July 17, 2013, and pled not guilty to the Indictment. 

The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years of imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both; a mandatory minimum period of at least 5 years of supervised release and an additional mandatory minimum term of 5 years of supervised release upon revocation; and a mandatory $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.  The charge is merely an accusation, and Marks is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service and Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges is prosecuting the case.  Marks was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.  A trial date has not yet been set.
