Bullhead Man Sentenced For Failure To Register As A Sex Offender

Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Bullhead, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on April 27, 2015, by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann.

Steven Whiteman, Jr., age 44, was sentenced to 16 months in custody, 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Whiteman was indicted by a federal grand jury on July 15, 2014.  He pled guilty on November 19, 2014.

The conviction stems from Whiteman failing to register as a sex offender between May 9, 2014, and May 25, 2014.  Whiteman was previously convicted of a sex offense in federal court, which requires him by federal law to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley prosecuted the case.

Whiteman was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
