Bullhead Man Sentenced for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

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 August 15, 2016, by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann.

Mario Delaney Crow Ghost, age 45, was sentenced to 10 months in custody, 8 years of Supervised Release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Crow Ghost was indicted by a federal grand jury on March 15, 2016.  He pled guilty on June 12, 2016.

The conviction stemmed from Crow Ghost failing to register as a sex offender from October 19, 2015, to March 15, 2016, when Crow Ghost had been convicted in U.S. District Court, District of South Dakota, for Sexual Abuse of a Minor. 

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

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