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

United States Attorney Ron Parsons announced that a Mission, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on May 28, 2019, by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

Jeffrey W. Provancial, age 27, was sentenced to 14 months in federal prison, followed by 5 years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Provancial was indicted by a federal grand jury on December 11, 2018.  He pled guilty on March 5, 2019.

The conviction stemmed from Provancial failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between June 13, 2018, and November 2, 2018.  Provancial 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 Michael J. Elmore prosecuted the case.

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