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

Delbert Bad Yellow Hair, age 75, was indicted on May 20, 2014.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on June 19, 2014, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.  

The maximum penalty upon conviction is 10 years’ imprisonment and/or a $250,000 fine, lifetime of supervised release, and a $100 assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment charges that between October 2013 and April 2014, Bad Yellow Hair failed to update his sex offender registration as required.

The charge is merely an accusation and Bad Yellow Hair is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.

The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.   Assistant U.S. Attorney Sarah B. Collins is prosecuting the case.  

Bad Yellow Hair was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.  A trial date has not been set.
