Marty Man Charged with Escape from Custody

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Marty, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for failure to register as a sex offender.

Raymond Lloyd Jandreau, age 61, was indicted on May 9, 2017. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica Duffy on May 17, 2019, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

According to the Indictment, Jandreau was convicted of a sex offense in South Dakota state court.  This conviction requires him to register for life as a sex offender.  Since July 1, 2016, Jandreau’s whereabouts have been unknown.  His last known address was in Farmington, New Mexico, but that residence was vacated with no sign of Jandreau.  His last known address in the District of South Dakota was in Marty, within the jurisdiction of the Yankton Sioux Tribe Reservation.  

The maximum penalties upon conviction are as follows: 10 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine; a mandatory minimum term of 5 years, up to life, of supervised release; $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund; $5,000 assessment to the domestic trafficking fund; and restitution may be ordered. 

The charges are merely accusations and Jandreau is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeremy R. Jehangiri is prosecuting the case.   

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