Fort Thompson Man Sentenced For Failure To Register As A Sex Offender

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Fort Thompson, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on April 14, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Raynard Bad Moccasin, age 43, was sentenced to 18 months in custody, 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
Bad Moccasin was indicted by a federal grand jury on September 17, 2013.  He pled guilty on January 22, 2014.

The conviction stems from Bad Moccasin failing to register as a sex offender between May 1, 2013, and September 17, 2013, as he was required to do under federal law.  Bad Moccasin was previously convicted of a sex offense in federal court, which requires him to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges prosecuted the case.
Bad Moccasin was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
