Fort Totten Man Sentenced for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

For Immediate Release
U.S. Attorney's Office, District of North Dakota

FARGO – U.S. Attorney Timothy Q. Purdon announced that on Sept. 23, 2013, Charles Marcus Lambert, of Fort Totten, N.D., was sentenced before U.S. District Judge Ralph R. Erickson on a charge of failure to register as a sex offender. Lambert, 33, pleaded guilty to the charges on June 17, 2013.

Judge Erickson sentenced Lambert to 14 months’ imprisonment to be followed by five years of supervised release. He was also ordered to pay a $100 special assessment to the Crime Victim’s Fund.

As the result of a sexual abuse conviction in U.S. District Court on May 11, 2006, Lambert was required to register his address with appropriate authorities in the jurisdiction in which he resides. During the course of his supervised release, Lambert was provided and signed the Notice and Acknowledgment of Duty to Register as Sex Offender on Jan. 12, 2012. At that time, he registered a residence in St. Michael, N.D., as the place he resided. However, from December of 2012 to February of 2013, Lambert did not reside at the registered address and his whereabouts were not known to his supervising probation officer.

The case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Janice M. Morley prosecuted the case
