Eagle Butte Man Indicted for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

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

Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that an Eagle Butte, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.

Jasyn Curley, age 26, was indicted on May 11, 2021.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on May 20, 2021, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, 5 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund on each count.  Restitution may also be ordered.

Curley was convicted of Sexual Contact With a Minor in October 2016.  As a result of this conviction, he is required to register as a sex offender.  The Indictment alleges that between February 25, 2021, and March 13, 2021, Curley, a person required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, and a sex offender by reason of conviction under Federal Law, failed to properly register as a sex offender and update his registration.

The charge is merely an accusation and Curley is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jay Miller is prosecuting the case.   

Curley was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
