U.S. Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that Kyle Gene Marks, age 27, of Ft. Thompson, appeared before U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange on March 14, 2012, and pled guilty to the indictment that charged him with Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years' imprisonment.
Marks was indicted by a federal grand jury in January 2012. The conviction stems from Marks, who was convicted in 2004 on one count of abusive sexual contact with a child, knowingly failing to register and update his registration under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act. The investigation was conducted by the United States Marshal’s Service. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges.
A presentence investigation was ordered, and a sentencing date was set for June 5, 2012. The defendant was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal pending sentencing.
