United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.

David Marrowbone, age 51, was indicted on June 10, 2014.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on June 26, 2014, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, a minimum of 5 years up to life of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered. 

The Indictment alleges that between February 3, 2014, and March 13, 2014, Marrowbone moved and failed to change and update his sex offender registration as required by law.  Marrowbone was previously convicted of a sex offense that required him to register as an offender.  He signed paperwork acknowledging his duty to register as a sex offender.  

The charge is merely an accusation and Marrowbone is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

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

Marrowbone was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service. Trial has been set for August 26, 2014.
