United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for allegedly failing to register as a convicted sex offender between November 2012 and January 2013.

Adam Trejo, age 24, was indicted by a federal grand jury on January 23, 2013 for failure to register or update as a sex offender. Trejo appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on June 4, 2013 and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years of imprisonment and a $250,000 fine. The charge is merely an accusation and Trejo is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Wayne Venhuizen is prosecuting the case.

Trejo was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshal. A trial date has been set for August 13, 2013.
