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

Acting United States Attorney Dennis R. Holmes announced that a Mosher, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on November 1, 2021, by U.S. District Judge Karen E. Schreier.

Tyrone Steven Andrews, age 29, was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison, followed by five years of supervised release, and a special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund in the amount of $100.

Andrews was indicted by a federal grand jury on June 2, 2021.  He pled guilty on August 2, 2021.

The conviction stems from Andrews failing to register as a sex offender as required by federal law between November 1, 2020, and June 2, 2021.  Andrews had previously been convicted of a sex offense in federal court, which required him to register until the year 2041.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Jeffrey C. Clapper prosecuted the case.

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