United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a man, who was most recently living in California, was indicted by a federal grand jury for failing to update his sex offender registration as required.

Robert Charles Black Cloud, age 59, was indicted on July 23, 2013, for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on July 24, 2013, and pled 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 Black Cloud is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Special Assistant U.S. Attorney Laura A. Shattuck is prosecuting the case.      

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