United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Pierre, South Dakota, man charged with Failure to Pay Child Support has pled guilty and was sentenced on October 23, 2013, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange
Jason Hackett, age 36, was sentenced to 5 years' unsupervised probation, restitution in the amount of $41,610.26, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. 

The conviction stems from nonpayment of past due child support obligations as ordered by the Sixth Judicial Circuit, Hughes County, South Dakota.  From on or about May 1, 2012, and continuing to the present, Hackett has resided in a different state than his minor child, and failed to pay past due support obligations.
The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley prosecuted the case.
