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 28, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Stuart Dion, age 30, was sentenced to 15 months in custody, 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.
         
Dion was indicted by a federal grand jury on November 14, 2013.  He pled guilty on February 3, 2014.

The conviction stems from Dion failing to register as a sex offender between September 17, 2013, and October 21, 2013.  Dion was previously convicted of a sex offense in federal court and is required by federal law 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.
         
Dion was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
