James Jumping Eagle, age 35, was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 15, 2010, for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on December 10, 2010, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 30 years of imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine.

The charge is merely an accusation, and Jumping Eagle is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
