United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rapid City man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for failing to update his sex offender registration as he was required to do.

Shaun Jason Meyer, age 36, was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 19, 2012, for Failure to Register or Update as a Sex Offender. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on June 22, 2012, and pleaded not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years' imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine. The charge is merely an accusation, and Meyer is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshal’s Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Wayne A. Venhuizen is prosecuting the case.

Blackburn was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has not yet been set.
