U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Lower Brule man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.
James St. Cloud, age 31, was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 14, 2011. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on January 12, 2012, and pled not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years' imprisonment, $250,000 fine, and 3 years of supervised release. The charge is merely an accusation, and St. Cloud is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
