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

Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Ft. Thompson, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on May 5, 2015, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Wylie Wind, age 28, was sentenced to 18 months in custody, 5 years of supervised release, and a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Wind was indicted by a federal grand jury on February 11, 2015, and pled guilty to Failure to Register as a Sex Offender on March 10, 2015.

The conviction arose from Wind’s failure to register and update his sex offender registration between December 15, 2014, and February 6, 2015.  Wind was required to register as a sex offender due to a prior federal conviction. Wind knowingly failed to register and update his address as required by federal law.

The investigation was conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service. The case was prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan Dilges.

Wind was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service to begin serving his sentence.
