Little Eagle Man Sentenced for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender

United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Little Eagle, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on January 4, 2017, by U.S. District Judge Charles B. Kornmann.

 

Kimo Little Bird, age 35, was sentenced to 27 months in custody, 5 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

 

Little Bird was indicted by a federal grand jury on September 13, 2016. He pled guilty on October 31, 2016.

 

The conviction stems from Little Bird failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between June 16, 2016, and September 13, 2016. Little Bird had previously been convicted of a sex offense in federal court, which requires him to register as a sex offender for 25 years starting in 2006.

 

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

 

Little Bird was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
