Fort Thompson Man Sentenced for Failure to Register

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Fort Thompson, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on April 19, 2018, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Jordan Traversie, age 27, was sentenced to 15 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.

Traversie was indicted by a federal grand jury on January 17, 2018.  He pled guilty on February 8, 2018.

The conviction stems from Traversie failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between October 23, 2017, and November 1, 2017.  Traversie had previously been convicted of a sex offense in federal court which requires him to register until 2039.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Troy R. Morley prosecuted the case.  Traversie was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
