United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Manderson, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on March 3, 2022, by Judge Jeffrey L. Viken, U.S. District Court.

James Shawn Jumping Eagle, age 46, was sentenced to 10 years in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, and ordered to pay $100 in special assessments to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.

Jumping Eagle was indicted for the charge by a federal grand jury on March 2, 2021, and pleaded guilty on April 7, 2021.

The conviction stemmed from Jumping Eagle failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between February 9, 2021, and February 20, 2021.  Jumping Eagle had previously been convicted of a sex offense in federal court, which required him to register for the rest of his life.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Heather Sazama prosecuted the case.

Jumping Eagle was immediately turned over to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service.
