Pierre Man Charged With Failure To Register As A Sex Offender

United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson announced that a Pierre, South Dakota, man has been indicted by a federal grand jury for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender.

Darrell Jerome Anderson, age 43, was indicted on September 16, 2014.  He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Mark A. Moreno on September 22, 2014, and pled not guilty to the Indictment.

The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 10 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, at least 5 years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund.  Restitution may also be ordered.

The Indictment alleges that between June 1, 2014, and August 12, 2014, Anderson, a person required to register under the Sex Offender Registration and Notification Act, and a sex offender by reason of a conviction under state law, failed to register and update his registration.

The charge is merely an accusation and Anderson is presumed innocent until and unless proven guilty. 

The investigation is being conducted by the U.S. Marshals Service.  Assistant U.S. Attorney Meghan N. Dilges is prosecuting the case.   

Anderson was released on bond pending trial.  A trial date has not been set.
