Acting United States Attorney Randolph J. Seiler announced that a Rapid City, South Dakota, man convicted of Failure to Register as a Sex Offender was sentenced on April 27, 2015 by U.S. District Judge Roberto A. Lange.

David Eagle Bear, age 31, was sentenced to 27 months in custody, 6 years of supervised release, a $100 fine, a $100 special assessment to the Federal Crime Victims Fund, and $527.24 for restitution.

Eagle Bear was indicted for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender by a federal grand jury on November 13, 2014.  He pled guilty on January 26, 2015.

Eagle Bear was previously convicted of a sex offense that required him to register as a sex offender, and he signed paperwork acknowledging that requirement.  Between August 4, 2014, and October 19, 2014, Eagle Bear moved and failed to change and update his sex offender registration as required by law.

This case was investigated by the U.S. Marshals Service. Assistant U.S. Attorney Tim Maher prosecuted the case.

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