Acting United States Attorney Dennis Holmes announced that a Mosher, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.
Tyrone Steven Andrews, age 29, was indicted on June 2, 2021. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy on June 4, 2021, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.
The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in federal prison and/or a $250,000 fine, life of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.
The Indictment alleges that Andrews, who had previously been convicted of a sex crime and required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, failed to do so between November 1, 2020, and June 2, 2021.
The charge is merely an accusation and Andrews is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty.
The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper is prosecuting the case.
Andrews was remanded to the custody of the U.S. Marshals Service pending trial. A trial date has not been set.
