Cherry Creek Man Sentenced for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Cherry Creek, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on February 27, 2017, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Delano White Face, age 41, was sentenced to 33 months in custody, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

White Face was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 14, 2016. He pled guilty on December 13, 2016.

The conviction stems from White Face failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between August 1, 2015, and June 14, 2016. White Face had previously been convicted of a sex offense in federal court, which requires him 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 Jay Miller prosecuted the case.

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