Wanblee Man Sentenced For Failure To Register As A Sex Offender

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Wanblee, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on March 5, 2014, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.  

Jayme Lee Rivers, a/k/a Jayme Two Crow, age 34, was sentenced to 12 months and 1 day in custody, 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Rivers was indicted by a federal grand jury on August 21, 2013, and pled guilty to Failure to Register as a Sex Offender on December 11, 2013.

The conviction arose as a result of Rivers’ failure to register as a sex offender between July 2009 and March 2010.  Due to his federal conviction in June 2000 for Sexual Abuse of a Minor, Rivers is required to register as a sex offender by the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. He knowingly failed to register and update his residential registration as required by federal law.

The investigation was conducted by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Division and the United States Marshals Service. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Mikal Hanson.

Rivers was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to begin serving his sentence.
